  Nagoya castle     
Now repairing the castle tower until 2023. It was wheelchair accessible before because of 2 lifts were made in 1959 reconstruction. However Nagoya city says they do not put lifts in the castle anymore. Yes, Nagoya city ignore elderly and person with mobility impairment. They want to remake all wooden castle. So sad and disappointment. Gardens are OK for wheelchair visitors.
