Nagoya Castle’s Honmaru Goten Palace

MC’d the opening of the final stages of the now 100% complete Nagoya Castle Honmaru Goten Palace today! It opens to the public next week! This final third section is known as the Jorakuden, and was made exclusively to accommodate the Shogun on his trips between Edo (Tokyo) and the Emperor’s palace in Kyoto. Nagoya Castle’s Honmaru Goten was the finest, most elegant of all the palaces, richly decorated in gold and lacquer, with art works by the most talented of the leading Kano School of Art. Everything has been 100% authentically created by hand, by the remaining leading traditional craftsmen. Besides an audience chamber, entertainment space and sleeping rooms, it also features a steam bath. One of the highlights is the gorgeous transom, hand carved from a single slab of wood, and painted with vivid colours. This is the ultimate in samurai architecture and art! This is a must see! Enjoy these few advance photos.
