About Nagoya

Nagoya is located in the center of Japan, between Tokyo and the cities of Osaka and Kyoto. It serves as a metaphorical and literal bridge between Eastern and Western Japan. The ancient history here runs deep, being the birth place of Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, three heroes of Japan’s Warring States Period. If you want to feel as though you live in the time of heroes, pay a visit to Nagoya Castle. Atsuta Shrine and Osu Kannon Temple are excellent locations to learn about the culture of Japan. If you feel more at home in modernity, then the avant-garde Oasis 21 shopping center and the prosperous Sakae District are great locations for shopping and snacking alike. JR Central Tower is considered the gateway to Nagoya, a perfect destination for food, shopping and entertainment.
