Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hiroshima are all within easy reach.

Nagoya city is an ancient foundation which has played a significant role through history, not only as a transport hub but also as the main city of the rich and fertile Nōbi Plain. The magnificent Nagoya Castle was constructed early in the 17th century and the town with its many industries has since developed around it. Over the last century, the port of Nagoya has grown to become the largest in Japan for international commercial shipping and is today connected with over 150 countries worldwide. Because of its excellent transport connections, Nagoya has become increasingly prosperous and is now the home of many significant industrial businesses, such as the Toyota Motor Corporation.

Today, Nagoya has a population of 2.2 million and continues to develop as a vibrant center of commerce, culture and learning. Its port, its business center, its museums and its university make it one of the most lively and stimulating cities in Japan.
