The city of Nagoya offers a big-city atmosphere, but is lightly visited, leaving it a popular destination for those looking to experience Japan, but without the hectic crowds normally found in other cities like Tokyo. With a four hundred-year old history, the city has much to offer.
One of the city’s biggest draws is Nagoya Castle
. It was built in 1612 and restored in the 1950s, maintaining its magnificence and splendor. Nagoya TV Tower
is an excellent site to visit for great views of the city from the 100-meter high sky balcony. When looking to explore the shopping opportunities, Oasis 21 Shopping Center and Osu Shopping Arcade provides everything from modern retail to mom-and-pop shops. Hotels can usually provide an abundance of information on recommended sites, including local gardens and cultural spots. A large expatriate community is catered to by several cafes and Western-styled restaurants. More authentic dishes would be udon noodels, kishimen, and miso nikomi udon. Chubu Centrair International Airport
serves the city of Nagoya, and hotels are conveniently connected to the city gateway via the Meitetsu Airport Line. Once in the city, six subway lines and taxis provide ample means to get around and explore Nagoya.
