As one of Japan’s largest cities and the birthplace of the Pachinko parlor, there’s no doubt that the streets of Nagoya are lively and electric once the sun goes down. While Nagoya nightlife often sees local work parties at an izakaya or solo arcade Pachinko visits, Nagoya is also home to its fair share of fun drinking holes, karaoke bars and food spots which attract sociable locals and visitors. I love that Nagoya is completely walkable. It’s easy when you live in the city center; you can walk to all the bars and clubs and buy beers on the way since there are no laws about public drinking. There are many cool things to do in Nagoya at night and always somewhere new you can go. So, be brave and check out new places. I love the adventure of exploring new spots; it’s often hit and miss but that’s all part of the fun of it. Nagoya’s streets feel spacious; there’s always room to walk, always people to talk to, and always places open to grab a drink or bite to eat. Everyone's pretty friendly and polite as well, and there’s no sense of being rushed (like in fast-paced Tokyo). In Nagoya, you can slow down and take your time, fully soaking up the best things to do in Nagoya at night.
