Reasons to visit Nagoya

 traditional cuisine nagoya

Sample traditional cuisine

Nagoya sits in the Chūbu region, an area famous for its tamari soy sauce production. Many of the city’s traditional dishes include tamari, giving them their distinct and rich umami flavour.

Sample some Ogura toast, a popular breakfast dish found in cafes up and down the city and in the surrounding Aichi Prefecture. Finally, try the deep fried shrimp called tenmusu, Nagoya’s speciality dish.

Visit Atsuta Jingu

A trip to Nagoya wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Atsuta Jingu. Considered to be one of the most important shrines in the Shinto belief system, Atsuta Jingu is home to Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi – one of the three Imperial Regalia of Japan.

Spend an afternoon studying the 4,000 relics in the treasure hall, before wandering through the wooded grounds and grabbing a bowl of Atsuta Shrine’s version of kishimen noodles.

city view nagoya

Day trip to Gero Onsen

Take a break from city life and catch a train to Gero Onsen. This picturesque town sits on the banks of the Hida River and is overlooked by towering mountains.

Lie back and relax in Funsenchi, a free open air hot spring beside the river. Be sure to visit between the beginning of January or the end of March for the thrills of the Gero Onsen ‘Fireworks Story’.

Things to know before you fly to Nagoya

plane Airport transfers

Chūbu Centrair International Airport (NGO) is the closest airport to Nagoya. The fastest way to get to Nagoya centre is by train. Take the Meitetsu Line and you’ll arrive in the city in under half an hour. Buses, taxis, private shuttles and rental cars are also available from the airport. Arrange a transfer with Etihad for a smooth pick-up when you land.

currency Currency

The Japanese Yen (JPY) is the standard unit of currency in Japan. Most of the stores and shops you visit will accept international credit or debit cards, but if you’re planning to travel to more remote areas it’s probably worth exchanging your money into yen.

accommodation Where to stay

Nagoya is split into 16 wards, easily accessed by road and rail. Families tend to favour staying in Naka, the city centre. With a mixture of modern amenities and historical sites, Naka has everything you could need on your doorstep. Stay in Sakae for shopping, home to three of the city’s largest department stores. Historic Nishi-ku boasts the Nagoya Lucent Tower, one of Japan’s tallest buildings.

bus Getting around Nagoya

There are plenty of public transport options in Nagoya. The best option is the Nagoya Subway – it’s easy to navigate with maps in both English and Japanese, and provides access to the city’s most famous landmarks and attractions. Hop aboard the Me-guru bus route for a first-hand view of the city’s historic sites. For excursions and day trips, use the trains. The railway network connects Nagoya with Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto.

Flying to Nagoya: FAQs

How many days should I spend in Nagoya?

Two or three days is usually enough time to explore the best of what Nagoya has to offer. But if you want to journey to surrounding areas, or visit Tokyo or Osaka, it would be best to allow five to seven days to give you time to see everything.

What should I see in Nagoya?

From the largest planetarium in the world at Nagoya City Science Museum to the landscaped gardens of Meijō Park, there is plenty to see and do in Nagoya. We recommend enjoying a spot of shopping on Osu Shopping Street before spending a quiet afternoon at Osu Kannon temple.

Which is Nagoya’s best beach?

Blue Sun Beach is the closest to Nagoya, about half an hour away from the city. With picnic areas and volleyball nets, it’s ideal for families. Live music lovers should flock to Tokoname Rinku Beach during the summer season for its concerts and music festivals. A short trip from Nagoya will have you enjoying the solitude of Himakajima’s island beaches. Book a boat tour to see wild dolphins or hire bikes and cycle along the seafront.

What are the free things to do in Nagoya?

Nagoya has an abundance of clean parks and gardens that are free to visit. Tour the grounds of the Atsuta Shrine, enter the Osu Kannon Temple and browse the Noritake Garden and Pottery Museum.

Why we love Nagoya

"Nagoya is so special because one minute you can be staring up at skyscrapers and the next walking beneath cherry blossom trees in the grounds of centuries old temples. It’s unlike anywhere else you’ll ever go."
