Are you looking for what to do in Nagoya?
THINGS TO DO AND SEE:
For tourists, Nagoya offers a full complement of cultural, family, shopping, nightlife and other modern attractions. The Castle is the main attraction - restored from its damage in the World War II bombings and now a treasure trove of cultural and historical artifacts. There is good sightseeing at the port, which is among the most thriving in the country, and also has several tourist attractions such as the Port of Nagoya Aquarium, the Fuji Icebreaker ship, and the Maritime Museum.
Apart from the Atsuta Shrine, which contains one of the Japan's three Imperial Treasures, there are endless other shrines and temples to visit. The Osu Kannon temple in particular is enchanting, and that visit can be combined with a visit to the Osu Shopping Complex.
If you'd rather spend time outdoors, check out the Higashiyama Zoo & Botanical Garden, Meijo Park or the Hisaya Odori Park. For houses that are centuries old, tour down the Shikemichi neighborhood. And before your Nagoya visit, just look up the city's events and festival calendar online - there's ALWAYS something going on. Shopping is also good in the Nagoya city centre. There’s a lot of excellent nightlife too, considering the size of the city.
