T0682

Uncommon poster issued for the domestic Japanese market promoting tourism and encouraging visitors to the historic city of Nagoya.

 

The poster shows the famous Nagoya Castle on the character for Spring and with a silhouette of cherry blossom on the left side of the poster. During the Edo period (1603-1868), Nagoya Castle was at the heart of one of the most important strategic towns in Central Japan, located on two important trading routes. By the 20th century, the castle was no longer considered of military or strategic importance and ownership was transferred to the City of Nagoya. The castle and grounds were opened to the public for the first time in February 1931.

 

The poster was issued by Nagoya Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Nagoya Tourism Bureau.
