Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Explore Nagoya's surroundings by going to Nakasendo Magome Walking Trail (in Nakatsugawa), Ise (Oharai-machi, Okage Yokocho, & more) and Toba (Toba Aquarium, Toba Shopping Plaza Hello, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Nagoya Castle, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium, admire the masterpieces at Tokugawa Art Museum, and don't miss a visit to Osu Shopping Street.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Nagoya visit site .
