Nagoya, capital of Japanese industry

In the heart of the Chubu region, Nagoya is the fourth largest city in Japan behind Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka. It’s known more for Toyota and its industrial port than for its appeal to tourists. However, Nagoya has so much to offer with its castle, Atsuta Shrine, sumo tournaments and delicious cuisine. 

  • Nagoya Shopping & Entertainment

Nagoya's three main shopping and entertainment districts are Sakae, nearby Fushimi and increasingly the Nagoya Station area (Meieki). Department stores in Nagoya include Takashimaya in the Twin Towers of Nagoya Station, Matsuzakaya in Sakae, which has the largest floor space of any department store in Japan and Mitsukoshi also in Sakae.

Sakae remains Nagoya's most famous shopping area, especially for younger people and "Nagoya gals" - a tribe of expensively and extravangantly attired young Japanese women. Noted shopping malls are Lachic and Nadya Park, there are popular branches of the Apple Store, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Agnes b. both inside Mitsukoshi.

There are branches of BIC Camera and Tokyu Hands at Nagoya Station and for cheap electronics and a regular flea market visitors should go to the Osu Kannon and Kamimaezu area of shotengai or covered arcades.

The Nagoya Station area is increasingly going high rise. The Central Towers of Nagoya Station contain the Takashimaya Department store with a branch of Tokyu Hands and an excellent basement supermarket for food shopping, there are restaurants on the upper floors of the Central Towers and the luxurious Nagoya Marriott Associa Hotel on the 15th floor. The nearby Meitetsu and Kintetsu stations also have their own recommended department stores. In addition, the Meieki underground shopping mall has a variety of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. Across the street from Nagoya Station, the towering Midland Square has a multiplex cinema and there's another large multiplex at Sasashima Raibu, one stop from Nagoya Station on the Aonami Line or a short walk past the Nanachan Statue and the Kintetsu and Meitetsu stations.

Aichi Expo 2005 was held in the eastern suburbs of Nagoya and the Expo site is now a popular park, Ai-Chikyuhaku Kinen Koen. Access is by the Linimo from Fujigaoka Station on the Higashiyama Line of Nagoya's subway.
