Nagoya Castle, one of the most representative Japanese castle structures of the early modern period, was constructed by leyasu Tokugawa (1542-1616), founder of the powerful Edo Shogunate. Following the construction of Edo Castle and Sumpu Castle, the Shogun ordered the construction of Nagoya Castle, actually the last to be built during his reign. The construction of Nagoya Castle began in 1610.  The operation was carried out as a national level project to build a great castle that would symbolize the power and authority of the Tokugawa Shogunate. The five-storied Great Tenshu, the Castle's donjon, crowned with a pair of glittering golden dolhpin-like "shachi", was especially famous as the largest wooden castle structure in Japan.

Nagoya Castle's Hommaru Palace was constructed by Tokugawa leyasu in 1615 to be used as the residence and government offices of the first lord of Owari Province. Both the palace and the main castle tower were designated as national treasures in 1930, and it was well-known example of masterpiece architecture. The palace is a single-storied structure with over 30 rooms and a total of 3,100sqm.
