About Aichi and Nagoya
Aichi prefecture is located in the central part of Japan, between Tokyo and Osaka in Japan. Aichi has the population of 7.4 million and plays an important role as the #1 contributor to Japan’s manufacturing and technological industry. The headquarters of major companies such as Toyota Motors, Mitsubishi heavy industries etc. are located in Aichi.
As located in the center of Japan, Aichi has long history and rich culture. Three leading figures – Nobunaga ODA, Hideyoshi TOYOTOMI, Ieyasu TOKUGAWA, were born in Aichi (called Owari or Mikawa at their time) and unified medieval Japan. Such daimyo left many castles and now these are famous as the sightseeing spots. There are not only historical temples and shrines with majestic, or mysterious atmosphere but also many museums and amusement parks in Aichi.
Nagoya is the capital city of Aichi. Over 2 million people live in the city. Nagoya is a good place as the home base for the trip with Shinkansen (bullet train): to Tokyo in 100 minutes, to Kyoto in 35 minutes, to Osaka in 50 minutes. Local train or car will be useful to viti the places like Ise, Takayama etc. Nagoya is also a central place of culture and food in Aichi.

Recently, Nagoya has been more attractive to the people around the world. The Time Magazine pciked Nagoya as one of the world’s 50 greatest places 2023 in March 2023. Here’s the page: https://time.com/collection/worlds-greatest-places-2023/6261808/nagoya-japan/. As shown in the page, three things are picked for its reason: Chita whiskey, Ghibli park, and hotel. Chita whiskey is produced by Suntory. The name Chita comes from the place of the distillery – located at the coast of Chita Peninsula, where Centrair airport also locates. Unfortunately Chita distillery does not offer tourist visit, but you can enjoy Chita whiskey at many bars in Nagoya – especially Chita Kaze Kaworu Bar at Nagoya station. Ghibli park – located in Nagakute city, next to Nagoya – is newly opened homegrown theme park inspired by Hayao Miyazaki films. In the park you can dive into Ghibli’s film world such as Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro and so on. Nature conservation was one of the most important target when constructing the park. From that, the park lives together with rich nature. The last, for hotel, two hotels are featured in the article. One is the Tower Hotel Nagoya, which locates in the TV tower at the central Sakae area. As Sakae is city-central-fashonable area, there you can enjoy Japanese trending things. The another one is the new riverside Hotel Indigo Inuyama Urakuen Garden. The hotel is located at the north of Nagoya, riverside of Kiso River.
