Nagoya City Hall was built in 1933 and miraculously survived the wartime bombing of the city, which destroyed nearby Nagoya Castle.
The building is a mix of Japanese and western styles and includes the imperial symbol at the top of its roof. The tower (pictured below) has 12 floors. The complex contains many of the administrative offices of Nagoya city including the Mayor's office, the Health and Welfare Bureau, the Fire Department, the Board of Education Office and the Office of Tourist Development.
