Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Nagoya Castle and Sakae are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Nakasendo Tsumagojuku and Mt. Kinka. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Nagoya: Okazaki Castle (in Okazaki), Iroganeyama Historical Park (in Nagakute) and Tounin (in Agui-cho). There's still lots to do: appreciate the views at Koran Valley, examine the collection at SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, and engage your brain at Nagoya City Science Museum.
