Nagoya Castle was the first castle structure in Japan to be designated as a National Treasure in 1930. Located in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, it was built in 1615 by Tokugawa Ieyasu. The iconic building has been damaged several times during the air raids of 1945 and had to be reconstructed almost completely. The reconstruction in concrete was completed in 1959, but restoration work is still ongoing to bring Nagoya Castle back to its former glory. 


Nagoya Castle’s main concrete keep is to be reconstructed until sometime in 2022 and cannot be entered anymore. Demolition of the keep is expected from autumn 2019.
