Though the castle has been a symbol of Nagoya for around 400 years, the current castle that stands in Nagoya today is actually a reconstruction and was built in 1959. The beautiful architecture of the castle matches perfectly with a kimono look!

The Meiji period (1868-1912) was a time in Japan where the country was just stepping out of isolation and into the modern Japan we see today. The Meiji-Mura museum is filled with historical buildings that have either been reconstructed or moved to the open-air museum. With unique architecture, many couples love taking vintage photos in the museum.
