What you'll do

Get a personalized introduction to Nagoya (and plenty of insider tips and tricks) from your sensei – sorry, knowledgeable local insider. Who needs a map when your host can point out each district from the highest open-air observation deck in Japan, the Midland Square skyscraper? Soak up the spirit of ancient Japan at 700-year-old Osu Kannon Temple, which happens to be right in the middle of the city’s famous otaku hub - the Osu neighborhood - packed with stores selling cool costumes and gaming goods. And when you’re comfortably seated in a backstreet izakaya, ask your host any questions you have between bites of grilled Nagoya cochin, the local specialty chicken!

Where you’ll go

Buckle up for a crash course in central Nagoya, where you’ll master the modern Japanese arts of navigating maze-like streets, taking always-punctual public transport, and choosing the best restaurants. Get to grips with action-packed Sakae and Osu, the busy shopping districts in the heart of the city that are packed with futuristic malls, upmarket bars, and a street dedicated to gaming goods and cosplay! Once you’ve scoped out the food scene (the hidden local hotspot Fushimi Underground Shopping Street is an excellent place to start), strolled through the tranquil forest of Atsuta Shrine in the south of the city and hopped on the subway to the grandiose grounds of nearby tourist hub Nagoya Castle, you’ll be a seasoned pro at exploring.
