The Museum Meiji-mura

Beautifully located on a hillside facing Lake Iruka, it occupies an area of 1,000,000m2, where currently over sixty Meiji buildings have been brought and rebuilt. On display inside the buildings are furniture and other items of interst, objects of reference related to the respective buildings, and temporary Exhibitions of historic materials as occasions call. The Meiji-mura offers the Japanese people a place of social education, where they can discover and have first-hand contact with the form and spirit of the Meiji period. We also believe that the Meiji-mura, as an evidence of East-West cultural exchange, can be helpful to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of Japan and other countries of the world.

A very nice museum with very good shuttle bus taking you throughout the museum if you don't want to walk.
My kids are crazy steam train (SL) fans and they have been taking a number of rides there.
There is a large open space with desk and bench where you can relax and picnic but it was too hot when we were there.
Not much tourists which gave you more space and time to enjoy!
Unfortunately we were too engaged with stream train and left no time to shop and go to the post office.

Inuyama Jokamachi

Reviewed By BertSG - Singapore

As the main thoroughfare so to speak in Inuyama, its quite a let down. Many shops were not open, restaurants few with hardly any dining options. Shoppers would likely fine this place sparse and lacks offerings. Hardly spent 20-30min walking up and down the street and we were done.

Urakuen Garden

Reviewed By sekaitraveller - Banff

I have sometimes included castle visits with garden visits (ex. Okayama) and found this garden to be small, average and lacking any castle views. The addition of historical teahouses is interesting but on the whole, I wouldn't make a repeat visit here. The Joan teahouse is a National Treasure. I have absolutely no regrets in making the effort to get here but Inuyama Castle is the star of this show - and this sideshow attraction doesn't warrant a visit if you're pressed for time.

Sanko Inari Shrine

Reviewed By J&S_Singapore - Singapore

Sanko-Inari-jinja is just at the foothill to reach up to Inuyama Castle, and beside Haritsuna shrine. . It is the visible route so and almost all visitors to the Castle visit here before head to upwards. The word “Inari” that means a fox in Japanese so there are a few fox statures within the shrine. It is also famous for its many red torrii! The impressive shrine is where 3 deities are enshrined with red Torii, and whom provide blessings to worshippers.
Not a very big shrine but worth a visit should you decide to visit Inuyama Castle.

Japan Monkey Park

Reviewed By Gabsy_12 - Nagoya, Japan

The park has a large variety of monkeys, some of them quite exotic, and there is a small petting zoo with some interesting animals such as geckos, salamanders, turtles and other critters that the children can hold. The amusement park that is part of the Monkey Park is fun, too. You can pay for the entrance ticket and then buy individual tickets for each ride if you want to go to the amusement park, or get a "day passport" which allows you to visit the monkey park and go on as many rides as you want (the one-day passport is about 3,200 yen for children, whereas the regular ticket is 800 yen for children, and each ride is about 300 yen). We had a very fun day at the park. The only thing that I did not like very much was some of the small enclosures where the monkeys are kept. But there is a small "island" with lots of trees where there are some very small monkeys from Bolivia, and you can see see them jump from branch to branch and even come very close to the visitors. The staff at the park is very nice and helpful.

Daisyoji Temple

Reviewed By Abdulla A

I loved it a lot.
Going up the stairs with the nice view of the city and the river is amazing.
You can even see the castle at the top and if you are a photography professional, I am sure the view of the castle at the top will satisfy you.
Definitely worth it.
