Nagoya

Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.

And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, step into the grandiose world of Nagoya Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, and walk around Hisaya-odori Park.
