Open March 29th 2018, composed by two distinct areas in location adjacent to Nagoya Castle!

Kinshachi Yokocho is the long-awaited restaurant and shopping facility at Nagoya Castle, featuring old established brands of merchants specialized at traditional Nagoya Meshi dishes, also going by the nickname of "Samurai Cuisine".

The facility is divided into two separate areas, one near the Main Gate Seimon and another near the East Gate Higashimon, each boasting its own distinctive air and style.

Yoshinao Zone, near the Castle's Main Gate, follows the concept of tradition and historical accuracy and is named after the first ruler of Nagoya Castle - in the occasion of Japan's stepping into the Edo Period - Tokugawa Yoshinao. East Gate's Muneharu Zone is similarly named after a Tokugawa Lord, this time Muneharu, the 7th Lord, known for his progressive and modern thinking. Stop by each area to taste and experience the wonders of Nagoya's local food.

Main Gate Seimon - Yoshinao Zone

Gathering old brands that focus on the authentic and unchanged taste of the Nagoya Meshi local cuisine, even the building housing the 12 participating tenants follow the strict Japanese architectural style of the early Edo Period. Also features a prominent souvenir shop franchise.
