Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
On the 6th (Thu), explore the historical opulence of Nagoya Castle, then see the interesting displays at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, then make a trip to Osu Shopping Street, and finally observe the fascinating underwater world at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. Keep things going the next day: step into the grandiose world of Hikone Castle, take in nature's colorful creations at Nabana no Sato, then examine the collection at SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Nagoya TV Tower.
