A modern city undergoing rapid development
Nagoya is the third largest metropolitan area, next to Tokyo and Osaka. It is located in the center of Japan, and is home to both the Aichi Prefectural Government and the Toyota headquarters. Nagoya’s GDP is such that it surpasses that of a small nation.
Development has seen much progression in recent years, and the area surrounding the Nagoya Station is full of high-rise buildings. Sakae and fushimi, the primary shopping and entertainment districts, are also near the station. The Fushimi Nagoya Castle is only a few subway stations away from the Nagoya Station. With a number of sight seeing locations nearby, the station makes it easy to visit multiple destinations.
Oasis 21 is a memorable building with a massive oval roof. Right next the the Nagoya TV tower, it contains shops and bus terminals in its underground, and has a grassy rooftop; it is an oasis like space in the center of the city. Inside you will also find guides for tourist attractions.
Nagoya is also an access hub for popular sight-seeing locations in the central district. You can make a day trip to Inuyama Castle, one of the most beautiful castles in Japan, from Nagoya.
You can also travel to Isejingu, the most sacred shrine in all of Japan, by bus or train from Nagoya.
Nagoya is also found between Tokyo and Osaka, making for easy access to both via bullet train.
