Nagoya Castle

The development of Nagoya’s culture and economy since the early modern period has focused primarily on the districts around Nagoya Castle. In front of Nagoya Castle (south side), the town where the townspeople live, which is the basis of Nagoya’s town development, was created, and Horikawa played an active role as a transportation route for living supplies. The Ito Historic Residence (Cultural property designated by Aichi Prefecture), located on the west side of Nagoya Castle, consists of the main building and four warehouses and is a merchant house that used water transportation of Horikawa to run a family business. It is closely related to Horikawa, which is involved in the formation of the castle town of Nagoya and remains as valuable building as a high-class commercial building.

Nayabashi Bridge

Seven bridges built during the Edo period cross the Horikawa River, which connects Nagoya Castle to the sea at Atsuta. Named after a site nearby, Nayabashi Bridge was built when the Horikawa River was excavated, in conjunction with the construction of Nagoya Castle. During the Edo period, pottery from Seto, one of the leading pottery producing areas in Japan, was transported via the Yada and Shonai Rivers and collected and inspected at the Owari clan’s storehouses along the side of the Horikawa River (currently near Tennozaki Bridge, Mitsukura Street) before being shipped throughout Japan.

Atsuta/Miya no Watashi

Today, the area around Atsuta is surrounded by national roads and buildings, and it is now far from the sea, but around the beginning of the Edo period, it prospered as a base for shipping, with the Ise Bay spreading out before Miya no Watashi, the only maritime route along the Old Tokaido Road. In 1625, a nightlight was erected, indicating the gateway for entering and exiting vessels. Since the Edo period, the development of reclaimed marshlands has proceeded gradually, and the sea has become more distant from this land. Now, these reclaimed mashes have been transformed into land for factories and residential areas.
