Nagoya Castle 名古屋城

Description The Southeast Yagura, also known as the Tatsumi Yagura. It too is an original structure and designated Important Cultural Property. The structure of this and the previous Southwest Yagura is interesting in that it is only 2 levels but actually 3 stories. The large protrusions under the roofing are rock chutes (ishi otoshi) for dropping stones on attackers attempting to scale the walls.
