Located on Japan’s main island, Nagoya is a center for Samurai culture, manufacturing, and unique regional cuisine––and truly has something for everyone!
Near our Nagoya hotel, go birdwatching at Fujimae Tidal Flat, and observe killer whales and penguins at the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. You can warm up at the Nagashima Hot Springs, and don’t miss the Nagoya Agricultural Center, famous for its unique weeping plum trees.
Fans of Japanese history can explore Samurai culture at Nagoya Castle, and learn about local history at the Nagoya City Museum. During your stay at our accommodations in Nagoya, tour the Nagoya-Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and visit the Atsuta Shrine, where you can wonder at the sacred sword believed to have been wielded by legendary hero Yamatotakeru-no-mikoto––and don’t miss the exhibits at the Toyota Automobile Museum.
Sample the local specialty of red miso in udon noodle miso soup, or try some miso-katsu, fried pork cutlets dipped in red miso sauce. After dinner, browse large department stores and underground shopping arcades in the bustling Sakae Area, or spend some time perusing the hand-made goods at Takayama City, only a short drive from our Nagoya accommodations.
