[Let’s Go to See Bushos(Army Generals)!] What is Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai?


Hello! I’m a writer of KARAKURIJAPAN, Yonosuke!


A “busho” was good at martial arts, and commanded farmers and townspeople long ago in the age of civil wars.

How do you think of a busho?


Most castles in Japan have statues of bushos. So even though we don’t know the age, we can see how they were great. Even the name busho sounds strong.


Then what if you can see these bushos?


Actually, there are some bushos you can see!

I’ll introduce these bushos whom you can see. Let’s go to see them!


Let’s Go to See Bushos! “Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai”




“Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai” is the group of bushos you can actually see.


They are arranged to advertise towns in Nagoya, and their economic effect has been 2,700,000,000 yen. So popular!

Then, how is the group “Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai”?
I’ll introduce the details!


What is “Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai”?


Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai is formed in 2009 at Nagoya Castle, and they work at Nagoya Castle.

They usually guide around Nagoya Castle and hold symposiums, and show martial arts demonstrations once a week.





They are so amazing that you can see them almost every day at Nagoya Castle.


They walk around in Nagoya Castle almost every day, so you can see them if you go there. As the name of “Omotenashi Busho-Tai”, they give omotenashi (hospitality) to visitors every day. It will be a good memory that you can enjoy seeing them in addition to the sight of Nagoya Castle.


Members of “Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai”





Members of Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai are great! All of them are known by everyone in Japan!

These members are…

Nobunaga Oda, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Ieyasu Tokugawa, Toshiie Maeda, Kiyomasa Kato, and Keiji Maeda

Such famous bushos! Even if you don’t so much about Japanese history, I guess you know most of them! And they should have affected even present-day Japan.

Besides bushos, there are some foot soldiers, farmers, cooks, and e.t.c as the members to heat up Nagoya.

And this Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai is also called Ikemen(handsome) Busho-Tai. As it’s called, they are handsome!

And that’s why there are many female fans of them. There are even some admirers. That’s just because they are so handsome.

Then, it is amazing that you can see them every day, isn’t it?

There is a national idol group known as “idol you can go to see”, and like that, you can see them just by going to Nagoya Castle. It’s really amazing.


Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai’s Activities are Various!


Nagoya Omotenashi Busho-Tai’s activities are not only in Nagoya Castle.

They go some festivals in Nagoya, appear on television, and do various activities.

And surprisingly, they made their CD debut!



Moreover, their DVD is also popular. They are like an idol.


On the other hand, they give publicity to traditional crafts and industries.





As time goes, various cultures come to Japan, and we loose original cultures little by little. So their activities to have the traditional Japanese cultures known by many people are extremely wonderful.


Japanese cultures have delicacy and unique aesthetics. And they want to have these Japanese cultures known by many people. This KARAKURIJAPAN have the same thought.
