Nagoya is located in the center of Japan, between Tokyo and the cities of Osaka and Kyoto. It serves as a metaphorical and literal bridge between Eastern and Western Japan. The ancient history here runs deep, being the birth place of Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, three heroes of Japan’s Warring States Period. If you want to feel as though you live in the time of heroes, pay a visit to Nagoya Castle. Atsuta Shrine and Osu Kannon Temple are excellent locations to learn about the culture of Japan. If you feel more at home in modernity, then the avant-garde Oasis 21 shopping center and the prosperous Sakae District are great locations for shopping and snacking alike. JR Central Tower is considered the gateway to Nagoya, a perfect destination for food, shopping and entertainment.
DanaI live in Nagoya, and I always go back to Nagoya Castle whenever I feel like to. Spring is the best time to go to Nagoya Castle. There are a lot of Cherry Blossoms around the area. The castle and the Cherry Blossom absolutely look mesmerizing in the pictures. Most importantly, Food Stalls inside sell a Cherry Blossom ice cream for ¥300. Winter in Nagoya Castle is not that scenic, though, the beauty of the castle will always be high level. Been there again last December 2019. During that time, the ice cream flavors for sale inside the castle were Berries and Green Tea. Entrance fee is still ¥500, and an additional ¥500 if you go inside the main castle tower. Unfortunately, the main castle tower is closed currently because it was damaged from the recent earthquake.
呼呼jdAtsuta Shrine (Japanese: あつたじんぐう, English: Atsuta Shrine) is located in the center of Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is one of the three major shrines in Japan and a solemn and sacred cultural relic of the Japanese imperial family. It covers an area of 190,000 square meters and is built in the style of gods, with the roof covered with copper plates. The main deity of Atsuta Shrine is Atsuta Great God (Sky Cong Yunjian), and Xiangdian worships Amaterasu Great God, Suzhan Mingzun, Japanese Wuzun and so on.
DanaI always pass by this piece of architectural art everytime I go to Sakae. The Nagoya TV Tower may no longer be accepting visitors recently, but it will never stop awing people with its beauty. It looks look Paris's Eiffel Tower in one glance. It is best to see it at night when it is all lit up. Unfortunately, recently, the local government of Nagoya has stopped lighting up the tower. I don't know the reason why, but yes, they did that. The tower is located inside Hisaya Odori Park and is readily accessible via all types of public and private transportation.
DanaŌsu Kannon Temple is one of my favorite places in Nagoya. Other It is such a popular temple in the city that many people visit it during holidays. They also have a lot of Doves flying around, and people can choose to feed them. During holidays and local festivals, the temple grounds usually have Food Stalls lining up. Foods in these food stalls are quite affordable. The best thing about visiting Ōsu Kannon is the fact that the Ōsu Kannon shopping district is just right next to it. So basically, you can go shopping right after you marvel at the beauty of the temple. How convenient is that?

The Nagoya TV Tower is located in the Hisaya Odori Park, which in the middle of Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is 180 meters high and is one of the landmarks in downtown Nagoya. As the elevator slowly rises, I am overcome with a sense of excitement. Such a gorgeous night view from the beautiful TV tower. Standing on the top floor of the high-altitude balcony, you can overlook almost all the scenery in Nagoya! The night outside the window has turned into a black curtain, a 3D image on the glass that makes it look like a dream. The sky meets the ocean and creates a romantic atmosphere that is called the sacred place of Nagoya! Many young men who want to propose to the loves of their lives come here to do it.
Legoland is the most recommended place in addition to Long Island Paradise. I am influenced by my daughter. I will often accompany her to Legoland. I am excited to come to Legoland, especially to see so many decorations made by Lego. They are all novelty. Legoland Nagoya is the eighth in the world and the second-largest in Asia. It is worth a special trip. The special mention is that the elevator of the hotel uses the stick of the submarine. When the elevator door is closed, the lights rotate, it is extremely joyful and the mood will be better. However, I feel like coming to the nightclub. There is also a Lego white graffiti paper on the table of the restaurant, and the children are making graffiti after eating. The hotel also has a lot of themes, and now this is the theme of the ninja room, and from the sheets to the wall are inspired by ninja elements. The entire park is divided into seven areas, including Lego Factory, Lego City, Adventure Park, Mini Park, Lego Kingdom, Bricktopia and Pirate Coast, each of them has a unique and interesting vibe.

Storing the sacred sword of the imperial regalia, this Shinto shrine is well worth a visit even though there are few English signs. Arriving at Jingu Nishi station follow the sign marked 300 m to the west entrance. After 2-3 minutes turn left & follow the crowds along the tree lined walk-way to the main shrine. After offering prayers, walk to the left & around to the back of the shrine, continuing the path until reaching steps by a stream. There enjoy flicking water onto the central rock with the wooden ladles while making a wish! The path eventually leads back to the entrance. I was impressed by the atmosphere. There is a hand washing area for tourists to wash there hands before started to pray. The day I visited was coincident with a wedding ceremony(I think). A paid museum is located inside as well. Be sure the opening hours when planning a visit.
We happened upon the Noritake site on our way to another tourist site and thought it might be worth a look. We are so glad we did. We visited the Craft Centre first with our teen/preteen daughters and we all found the displays very interesting as they took us through the whole process of creating fine objects. There were Japanese and English written explanations of everything and multi-lingual video presentations as well. We were also able to watch craftspeople carrying out the various stages. We really had an appreciation for the skill and time that goes into creating Noritake bone by the end of the display. For an additional cost, you are also able to paint your own piece (several options including plate, mug, figurines). The plate display which showed designs of plates in chronological order was particularly impressive. There is also a large shop, cafe and restaurant on the site, housed in renovated brick industrial buildings, and large garden areas which are a relaxing spot to sit. Well worth a visit.
This is my memory when visiting Nagoya Castle. A clean and full of historical value. Outside the palace also often held performances, telling stories about the golden age of the kingdom. All the palaces are located in a high place and from one of the palace windows we can see the vast city of Nagoya. Inside many ancient items and also high-value sculptures.
If you enter, don't forget to obey every regulation, for example there is a certain place that is not allowed to take photos.
First time in Japan and the view is great already
