My stay in Nagoya was above expectation, since Nagoya is not popular as tourist' destination in Japan, but when I stayed in Nagoya, I found the city is likeable, not very crowded, not very big, very convinient and very relaxing and also can be a gateway to go to the Japan's alpen area such as Takayama and others.
Nagoya is the fourth largest city of japan, although the sightseeing or attraction are not as many as Osaka and Tokyo, but with the rich heritage culture of the Nagoya, it is well worth to pay a visit during the Maple Leafs season, during November every year! Natural and Food are cheaper than Osaka and Tokyo.
Highly recommended visit for students is the Toyota Commemorative Museum, the Shinakansen museum.. I would not recommend Nagoya Castle visit as the castle is fully reconstructed-- a stroll around the original stonewalls is more interesting.
Basically a business/industrial city. Most of the sights can be seen in a few days. There are several factories that can be toured and Nagoya is promoting itself as a industrial tourist center (you can find the factories on the internet).
For traditional sights nothing is a 'must-see' (unlike Kyoto) but Nagoya is a pleasant enough city.
Nagoya is a cool place to visit. The people are so polite, friendly and helpful. They may not be able to express themselves well in English but they will take time and effort to help visitors find their way to their destinations.
Noritake Gardens was within walking distance from Nagoya JR station , and the Illumina Avenue was captivating with pictures shadows painted on walls and ceiling giving it an interesting illussion.
Alot of varieties of dining restaurants , with 2 supermarkets at the basement of JR station.
Great city to visit if you are looking to save cash. Instead of going to Osaka or Tokyo where the prices are a bit higher than usual, this place offers similar experiences and many things to do.
Suggest to go to Takayama and other rural areas near Nagoya, just staying in Nagoya is kind of boring as not many shops or restaurants as it is in Osaka/Tokyo and they close early too
Nagoya is not on the tourist circuit in Japan as it is seen as an industrial city. This is unfortunate as it has much to offer - museums, parks, shopping and great eating places.
And the people are very friendly indeed.
Experience between Kyoto and Osaka for food and culture, Nagayo has its own charms, Hitsumubushi (eel rice) rocks and nagoya castle and other parks is a good sight seeing place.
Many places to visit. If want to go to Kyoto n ise, get kintetsu bus ticket. If want to go to takayama n Shirakawago, get shuryoto bus ticjet from chubu airport.
I've travelled back and forth to Nagoya for many years and always found it to be a pleasant city, often overlooked by the likes of Osaka, Tokyo, Kyoto, etc.
, and to be fair that's understandable, but it is far from being the boring place some guide books paint to be. Try it.
Just like other Japanese city area, it can be very crowded near the train stations. The usual tourist attractions are the castle, sky tower and sky boat.
It is easy to walk around and some restaurants for the famous local food need reservations especially during the peak dining time.
We travelled out of Nagoya to Korankien and Magome (the Nakansendo Way). The beauty of Japan in its natural surroundings outside the city is breathtaking.
Nagoya is a beautiful and quiet city. You can take the Meguru Tourist bus in going around the area but a taxi will do if travelling in groups of 3 or 4.
Autumn weather was cool and nice.
As a transit city, Nagoya is good but not for shopping, a bit higher in pricing than other cities, and not able to find a hot bath tub hotel so far.
It was kind of hard to go to a city that rarely speak english, you have to have internet all the time to ask them questions or directions to places
The city is nice, very quiet and in the same time modern. many nice restaurants and bar and the centre is very good for shopping and walk around.
there is also the Castle and some interesting temples to see. city is small so 2 days are enough
a nice city to relax. But there are too much mosquito at Nagoya Castle and Atsuta Shrine. The Nagoya aquarium was amazing!! Love there so much!
Good to stay as a transit city, be the 1st stop or the last stop. also the attractions in the city is good travel with the bus pass "meguru".
Nagoya is an big business centre. But shopping is also great in Nagoya. And in and around Nagoya you can visit some culture places.
The subway-network works great. We had a good time.
Nagoya is worth a stop if you need a break in travel between two more popular tourist points or if you're on a business trip.
It is a big modern city with everything you might need before moving on.
If you go sightseeing to Nagoya, I recommend you also visit surrounding prefectures because Nagoya does not have much to see.
If you stay in Nagoya, try many reasonable foods that come from Nagoya: teba-saki, miso-nikomi, kishi-men, nagoya-ko-chin, an-kake spaghetti, and so forth...
A city without traffic jams , be it weekdays or weekends, day. Or nite!!!! Anytime of the day , there is no traffic jam
A good place to start when visiting Japan as it is in the center and can access Tokyo and Osaka easily either way.
It is a clean commercial city with lot of shopping mall.For sightseeing use Guru day pass is very convinence.
Nagoya castle, astute jingo shrine, osu cannon temple n shopping street r among places you should not miss.
Unlike other big cities in Japan, Nagoya has not much to shop, with less restaurants and night life also.
A peaceful city
We take bullet train to Tokyo. is very convenient. and we go to Ghibli's museum, is a very nice museum
It is in Centre of Japan so the transporation to either East and West is perfect with express railway.
