Walking around Inuyama Castle and its castle town
With the national treasure Inuyama Castle, its castle town, and a Japanese Garden that has a national treasure teahouse, Inuyama keeps on attracting people while leaving traces of the history.
The city was a battlefield during the Sengoku period (15th-16th century), and later in the Edo period (1603 to 1867) the area developed as a castle town. Traditional wooden houses and shrine that connect to the castle is appealing, and make it fun to walk around.
Inuyama castle was built in 1537 by Oda Nobuyasu, the uncle of the famous warrior Oda Nobunaga. It boasts of having the oldest existing castle tower. The castle has three layers in the exterior, four stories inside, and two basement stories, while the upper floor of the castle tower serves as a watch tower. Since Inuyama Castle was constructed as a guarding tower during the war, it maintains a simple and robust style.
On the top floor of the castle tower, you can enjoy great landscape. The view of Kisogawa river and fertile Nobi-plain can be seen.
After exploring the castle, it’s time to have a short break with some soft ice cream. Local souvenirs of Inuyama are also available at the shop.
