Nagoya is one of the largest cities in Japan, and like all great cities, it has its fair share of great shopping. However, there are so many options that it can get a little confusing. But fear not, with my guide you will be well on your way to buying gifts, souvenirs, or a little something for yourself!
I had more adventurous plans for the day and, accompanied with some friends, headed to the site of the 2005 World Fair located on the outskirts of Nagoya. The name of our destination is Morikoro Park, and to be honest I really didn’t know it existed before departing, but it exceeded all expectations I had...
According to some, had it not been destroyed by bombardments in World War II, the Nagoya Castle would have surpassed Himeji Castle, as Japan’s most impressive feudal castle. Nonetheless, its current ferroconcrete reconstruction from 1959 and surrounding Meijo Park with over 2,000 cherry trees makes for a marvelous sight in early spring. But the castle is a picturesque vision throughout the year with a variety of blooms.
When I moved to Nagoya, Japan I didn’t expect to have much to do. It’s a big city, sure. But compared to party towns like Osaka and Tokyo there’s not a lot. Luckily for me, I moved into a share house that used to be a hotel, which includes twenty natives.
When tourists plan on coming to Japan, they are most likely to spend the majority of their time in either the Tokyo or Kyoto surroundings. There is nothing wrong with that, for those are some of the greatest cities in the world.
