Nagoya Hotels

Standing proud on the great plain between Tokyo and Kyoto, Nagoya blends the best of Japanese culture. It may be best known as a gleaming center of industry and the home of Toyota, but at its heart is an ancient culture of pagodas and ninja warriors. If want to experience the modern side of Japan, you can ride on futuristic trains and visit high-tech museums, but you can also get lost in history at the dramatic castle and at cultural shows.

Things to see

Amid all the steel and glass of Nagoya’s polished downtown, Nagoya Castle is a bastion of traditional Japan. Though the original, centuries-old structure was bombed to obliteration in World War II, the many-tiered pagoda complex standing today is a faithful reconstruction. Luckily, many of the decorative murals and ornate ornamentation survived. A poignant symbol of hope is a camellia tree which regrew from the charred stump left after the war. As magnificent as the castle is, for car fanatics, nowhere can beat the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology. The automobile pavilion shows parts of the manufacture process, as well as iconic cars, while kids will love Technoland, where they can play and create in a world of engineering wonder. In Sakae, the downtown district, you’ll have your pick of department stores for retail therapy, and you can relax with the family in Hisaya-oodori Park, Nagoya’s version of Central Park.
