Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Kick off your visit on the 6th (Thu): step into the grandiose world of Nagoya Castle, then see the interesting displays at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, then don't miss a visit to Osu Shopping Street, and finally get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the historical opulence of Hikone Castle, take in nature's colorful creations at Nabana no Sato, examine the collection at SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, and finally enjoy breathtaking views from Nagoya TV Tower.

To plan Nagoya vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
