A few weeks ago, Nikki and I went to Meiji Mura and Inuyama Castle! Although I’ve been to Meiji Mura before, I knew I had to show Nikki because of how cool the place is! All of the buildings are so beautiful, and it’s amazing to think about how they all had to be picked up and moved there!
It was my first time going to Inuyama Castle though. The significance of Inuyama Castle dates back to the times of Oda Nobanaga. According to the internet, “Inuyama Castle was the final obstacle against Oda Nobunaga’s unification of Owari Province. After Nobunaga had defeated the Imagawa clan at the Battle of Okehazamain 1560, his cousin, Oda Nobukiyo, seized Inuyama Castle with the support of Saito Yoshitatsu on Mino Province.” The castle is also considered to be one of Japan’s national treasures along side, Matsumoto Castle, Hikone Castle and Himeji Castle.
