    Meijimura Museum & Inuyama Castle

    Nagoya, Japan

    Duration 6 1/2 hrs

Dozens of buildings from the Meiji Period have been carefully reconstructed at the Meijimura museum, and you will easily recognize the Western influence in the architecture. This short period in Japanese history ended in 1912 and marked the end of samurai rule and the beginning of Japan’s modernization.

As you meander through this official national treasure, you will see artifacts relating to the Naruse family that once owned the castle.
