Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
You've now added Chikaramachi Catholic Church to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Ise (Okage Yokocho & Ise Grand Shrine) and Chubu Park (in Toin-cho). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Nagoya Castle, meet the residents at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium, admire the masterpieces at Tokugawa Art Museum, and examine the collection at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Nagoya trip builder website.

Getting from Kanazawa to Nagoya by car takes about 3 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. In January in Nagoya, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
