Warehouses and merchants that supplied the lord and the castle

Distant just a short walk to the northeast from Nagoya Station lies one of the oldest shopping districts of Nagoya, Endoji Shotengai Shopping Street. From there, proceeding south by the nearby street along the Horikawa River, you can find the Preserved District of Shikemichi. During the Edo Period, merchants established here in 1610 while Nagoya Castle was erected, ordered by the Lord of Owari, Tokugawa Ieyasu, to stay gathered aiming to make the supply of provisions to the castle easier. Among the goods traded here was rice, soy paste miso, sake, salt, charcoal, lumber and others, all facilitated by the nearby, man-made canal and its transportation potential.
