INUYAMA is a small castle town...
INUYAMA is a small castle town near Nagoya. The area is a mecca for theme-park type places, but only one is exceptional - MEIJI MURA: The large open air museum in a park-like setting features Meiji-era (1868-1912) buildings moved from all over Japan. Many of these buildings were moved to escape demolition.
The park has forty or so buildings from this era including churches, government buildings and traditional Japanese merchant houses. You'll even find a jail, a bank and a telephone exchange building. Kyoto's first streetcar and an early steam locomotive transport you around the vast grounds on the shores of a large lake. It takes a full day to see all the buildings.

Nagoya ekimen yokocyo
Nagoya ekimen yokocyo is located on the 2nd floor in the Sunshine Sakae.
There are lots of Ramen shops which came from other region of Japan.
The floor is designed like an amusement park.
