Nagoya

Together with “Yokohama” and “Osaka”, “Nagoya” is one of the largest cities in Japan. It is home to the famous shrine of “Atsuta Jingu”, bestowed to “Kusanagi’s sword (One of the Three Japanese Treasures!!)”, and it has a longstanding history. As the shrine was built in 646, we can say that “Nagoya” is one of the most historic places in Japan. “Nagoya” was also the birthplace of “Minamoto Yoritomo”, who initiated samurai administration, and the territory of the Owari, one of the three Tokugawa families who directed the country during the Edo period. “Nagoya” has vast plains (the Nobi plains) that host the urban area and copious areas for rice cultivation in the surroundings. Moreover, there are industrial areas near the harbor. Historically speaking, “Nagoya” has always been an important spot and nowadays, with a population of over one million people, it has become one of the world’s largest cities in terms of economic development.

“Nagoya” has always been a significant point of conjunction with other roads, with the “Tokaido connection” that lead to “Ise Jingu”. The public transport network is extremely developed, with trains and buses that make it easy to move around. There are also some big airports in the region, namely “Nagoya airport” and “Chubu International airports”, so it is an option to travel directly to “Nagoya” from overseas.

Despite the old history of “Nagoya”, the cities are very modern. “Nagoya” underwent rapid changes, possibly because it always served as a connection between eastern and western Japan and also due to its continuous industrial development. There are famous spots where you can appreciate the history of “Nagoya”, such as “Atsuta Jingu” and “Nagoya Castle”. Aichi Prefecture, where “Nagoya” is located, has the largest number of temples in Japan. As per the number of shrines, it is the fourth. Quite impressive, isn’t it?

Below, we will be introducing the main touristic areas in “Tokyo”. We will also make sure to recommend areas that are good sightseeing spots also other than “Tokyo” in the “Travel guidebook” section. Please check it out!
