Aichi : Nagoya Travel Guide

Aichi : Nagoya | Travel guide

While Aichi prefecture in the middle part of Japan’s main island might not be a typical destination for international tourists, it has plenty to offer in terms of nature and history. Nagoya is its capital and is often overlooked by foreign tourists in spite of being known as a host for one of the Sumo Grand Tournament matches, gourmet local cuisine that often includes healthy red miso, and Nagoya castle. In this travel guide, you will find more reasons to stop for a few hours in this city if you travel through.

Outside of Nagoya, Aichi has several other spots of interest such as the Toyota museum and factory, Nagashima Spaland, Meiji Mura, and Inuyama Castle. Families with small kids might want to stop by at Legoland Nagoya as well.
