For our last day, I decided to take it easy on the newcomers. They were obviously tired already so I just chose two castles for the day. Something more traditional in contrast to the city sprawl of Tokyo. After arriving in Nagoya and leaving our baggage in the lockers at the station, we took a 30 minute train ride North to Inuyama.
We got off at Inuyamayoen Station and walked by the Kiso riverside where you can spot the castle keep jutting out at the top of the hill. There were several local vendors setting up along this same path.
We went back to Nagoya via Inuyama Station so we could pass by the castle town for lunch and buy a few souvenirs.
It was still early in the afternoon when we finished walking around Nagoya Castle. I wanted to visit a riverside park in Nagoya known for being one of the best cherry blossom spots in Japan but I saw that my companions were already beyong exhausted. So I cut the sightseeing short and took them to Oasis 21 to rest up until we had to leave for the airport. There’s always a next time! 😀
