Nagoya Castle

In 1610, Tokugawa Ieyasu began the construction of Nagoya Castle, as a residence for his son Yoshinao. The castle burned down in the war, but in 1959, the five-story main tower keep (approx. 48 meters), with its golden shachi ornaments, and the sub tower keep (approx. 24 meters) were reconstructed.
The Nagoya Omotenashi Bushotai greet visitors every day at the main gate, and were the reason behind the bushotai boom across the nation. They also put on an omotenashi performance on weekends and national holidays.

Historic Townscapes of Arimatsu

The village was established in 1608 between the post towns of Chiryu and Narumi on the Old Tokaido Road, through encouragement by the ruling clan. The traditional Arimatsu-shibori tie-dyeing of this area is said to have been invented by the first immigrant to the village, Takeda Shokuro, and the village prospered along with the tie-dyeing industry. Arimatsu lies along about 800 gently bending meters of the Tokaido Road. The townscape's relatively relaxed atmosphere has been preserved, with many wide-plot tie-dyeing stores, gates, and fences.

Slices of char-grilled eel are served atop a steaming bed of rice in a wooden container. Separate it into four servings and scoop out the first portion, savoring its natural taste. For the second portion, add the accompanying condiments and enjoy. The third segment is enjoyed like Ochazuke, doused in green tea or broth. For the final serving, repeat your favorite of the three different ways to eat this gourmet dish. Covered in rich tamari sauce, the taste of the eel is preserved even when tea or broth is added.

Boiled in a rich miso based soup and served piping hot in an earthenware pot, these noodles will tempt your appetite. Cooked and served in the same earthenware pot, the noodles are boiled in fresh rather than salt water to provide a firmer texture. The special soybean miso also retains its full flavor despite being boiled.
