Nagoya Vacations

Japan's traditional past blends seamlessly with its thriving modern economy in Nagoya. The country's third largest incorporated city is too often overlooked by tourists seeking either big city glamour or Japan's pristine countryside. In truth, Nagoya delivers a charming blend of both. As Japan's industrial heart, the best of business, shopping and ... Read more
dining can be found in the Sakae District. History buffs will not want to miss the nearby Atsuta Jinga. Shrouded by 1,000 year-old evergreens, it is Japan's second most venerable shrine and the rumored home of the Kusanagi sword, one of the three imperial regalia. Admire an abundance of cherry blossoms while exploring the Nagoya Castle, take in a concert by the local philharmonic orchestra at the Aichi Arts Center, and be sure to join high rolling Japanese bankers and businessmen in tying one on at the notorious watering holes of Nishiki Avenue. As a major transportation hub for bullet trains with easy access to beautiful beaches, mountains and forests, Nagoya provides a unique blend of Japan's many attributes.

In the last 3 years, been visiting this city at least once in a year for business trip. As the small city and the business city, Nagoya is just nice to short time visit. The food, with the local chicken wings "Yamachan" is a phenomenon! always take this when visit. May be i need to explore more rather than just the city side.

First to Review

The city itself isn't much to see, but there are a lot of museums, temples, and gardens that are worth a visit. Since nearly all signage is in Japanese (it's not exactly HK), it might be easier to do the "Nagoya Sightseeing Route Bus" instead of the subway; it's basically a hop on/hop off bus with no guide.

名古屋駅周辺の良いところは、車の心配をせずに歩いてお買い物が楽しめる地下街の充実だろう。
 しかし、新幹線が止まる駅前の大阪や京都と比べるとお買いものエリアは広範囲な割にイマイチ垢抜けていないところがある。
まあそれゆえに、宿泊は大阪や京都よりも探しやすく、同レベルのビジネスホテルでも千円は安い印象を受ける。
 昔は名古屋の油ギトギト炭水化物多い目な料理にうんざりしたが、この10年は高島屋が駅前にできてとても洗練された感じになってきた。それと同時にわざわざ栄まで足を延ばすことがなくなったのも事実。
 名古屋は一言で言えば「便利な街」である。
