The third largest city in Japan with considerable historical interest and manufacturing power
Short trip from Kyoto to Nagoya

I recommend this course!

Profile

I came to Japan in 2003, having had an interest in the country and language for some time. I came with no particular idea of how long I was going to stay, and thirteen years on I'm still here. I guess I must like it! I have spent most of my time in Japan living in the Chubu area, specifically in and near to Nagoya (where I live now). I have been married for five years and have a number of nephews and nieces who live in Hokkaido, another area I very much enjoy visiting.

Located in the centre of the country, Nagoya can claim areas of considerable historical interest as well as being the main city in an area of Japan known for its manufacturing power. This area of Japan is the birthplace of all three of the men who changed the direction of the country in the 16th and 17th centuries, known as the "Three Heroes of Aichi. " But it's not just all about the past - Nagoya has a number of attractions showing off the innovative technological power of Japan and how it turned her industries into the world powerhouses that they now are. All this is wrapped up in a city that is big enough to give off the "big-city" feel but not so big as to be overpowering. We hope this will encourage you to come and see for yourself.
