Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Kids will enjoy Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology and Nagoya City Science Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Hikone Castle (in Hikone), Ise (Ise Grand Shrine, Okage Yokocho, &more) and Toba Aquarium (in Toba). There's much more to do: make a trip to Osu Shopping Street, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hosho-in (Osu Kannon), observe the fascinating underwater world at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Higashiyama Zoo & Botanical Garden.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Nagoya day trip website.

Bangkok, Thailand to Nagoya is an approximately 9- hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone changes from Indochina Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a 2 hour difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Bangkok in March, with highs in Nagoya at 13°C and lows at 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Wed) to allow time to take a train to Narita.

Pilgrims and aviators come to Narita, a town known during the Edo period for its temple, and now known primarily for its airport.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Aqua World Ibaraki Prefectural Oarai Aquarium and Funabashi Andersen Park. Get out of town with these interesting Narita side-trips: Mito (Kairakuen Park & Semba Boadwalk), Hitachi Seaside Park (in Hitachinaka) and Katori (Katori Jingu Shrine & Historic Old Town area in Sawara, Katori). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple, learn more about the world around you at Ibaraki Nature Museum, walk around Sakura no yama Park, and make a trip to Naritasan Omote Sando.
