Nobunaga's Nagoya Castle

I have some news on Nobunaga's Nagoya Castle.  The castle was 1640 by 1968 feet in length.  The numbers sound large,  However, if you add the buildings, stables, and the like.  Not that big at all.  The castle ruins is buried anywhere between three to five feet below the Ni-no-Maru marker at modern day Nagoya Castle.
