What you'll do

From its rich industrial history at an automotive giant to its current reputation as a fast-paced cosmopolitan hub (and major otaku hotspot thanks to downtown Osu), Nagoya is a must-see city for too many reasons to squeeze into four hours. But with a local host as the world’s most efficient GPS, you could be endlessly entertained in the downtown districts, from weaving through throngs at ultra-futuristic Oasis 21 mall next to the iconic Nagoya TV Tower to testing your luck at a hidden pachinko parlor - the popular slot machine invented right here in the city. Or, discover Japanese tradition at the historic Port of Nagoya or the Japanese-style Shirotori Garden for a teahouse ceremony.

Where you’ll go

After a quick bite of Nagoya’s hitsumabushi – a delicious local delicacy of grilled eel on a bed of rice – you’ll be more than ready to whiz through central Nagoya, from the high-rise-lined streets of downtown Sakae to the sacred grounds of 680-year-old Osu Kannon Temple in the neighboring district. Three miles south, you could stroll the lush forests surrounding 1900-year-old Atsuta Shrine, or head north to one of the city’s top attractions: stately Nagoya Castle. As dusk falls and the city lights start twinkling, maybe you’ll take a speedy elevator up to the Midland Square skyscraper, and let your host point out your dinner location from the top (unless you end up sipping sake at an izakaya in the secret underground Fushimi Shopping Street, of course).
