On the 22nd, the symbol of Nagoya Castle, "Kin no Shachihoko," which had been unloaded on the ground to support the tourism industry in a difficult situation with the new coronavirus, was returned to the castle tower by helicopter.
The male and female of Nagoya Castle and two Kin Noshachihoko were unloaded on the ground, and since March this year, the city center has been prosperous in an attempt to support the tourism industry affected by the new coronavirus. In addition, it has been exhibited in Gifu and Nagano prefectures.
It is the first time in 16 years since the Expo 2005 Aichi, Japan, that Shachihoko has landed on the ground, and according to the city, more than 270,000 people have seen Shachihoko up close in about four months.
On the 22nd, after 8 am, 1.2 tons of prominent moths were carried by helicopter one by one from the square in the castle and returned to the castle tower, which is about 50 meters high, in about 20 minutes.
In the future, it will be fixed with bolts and will be able to see the original appearance in the middle of next month.
An 81-year-old man living nearby said, "I was lonely at the castle without a chat, so I'm glad you came back. I want you to shine forever."
Toshinori Matsuo, director of the Nagoya City Tourism and Culture Exchange Bureau, said, "I am relieved to be safely in the castle tower. I want you to come and see the shining figure in the castle tower."
