Things To See & Do:
Touring a manufacturing plant might sound like a bore, but don’t dismiss it without trying it. As Japan’s leading car manufacturer, the vast robotic workforce of Toyota’s production plant is an incredible sight to behold. For die-hard fans, there are an additional three different Toyota museums to choose from.
This museum is built on the grounds of the former feudal residence of the Owari, part of the wealthy ruling Tokugawa family from the Edo era. The exhibit consists of a well preserved collection of treasures spanning the 14th to 18th centuries, including samurai armour and weapons, maps, scrolls, masks and costumes.
Atsuta is one of Shinto’s most important shrines and reputedly the home of the sacred sword Kusanagi, one of the three legendary imperial regalia, though it is never displayed to the public. The leafy oasis in the city center hosts around 70 festivals and ceremonies a year so you have a good chance of timing your visit to coincide with some local festivities.
Fans of manga and anime will be in heaven at this annual summit held in the district of Osu. The summit culminates in the World Cosplay Championship where teams from countries around the world show off their costumes as tributes to their favourite characters.
Nagoya’s downtown district of Sakae is a blend of the old and new. It’s home to the first TV tower built in Japan, Nagoya TV tower, standing at 180 meters with an observation deck at 100 meters, as well as the futuristically-styled Oasis 21 complex full of shops and restaurants. A number of big name malls, department stores and fashion boutiques are also located in the same area.
Nagoya is a good starting point for a variety of side trips to the rural villages, mountains, hot springs, traditional towns and hiking trails that dot the region. Try Shirakawa-go for its traditional farmhouses, Takayama for a well-preserved old town, Gero for peaceful hot springs and Kiso Valley for the historic Nakasendo highway postal walk through green hills and valleys.
