Part of the fun of a study abroad is thoroughly exploring your new home. Take in the historical sites in and around Nagoya, enjoy the local cuisine and sake breweries in the Chubu region, and create lifelong friendships with the locals.
Nagoya is located at the centre of Honshu (the main island of Japan) with a population of 2.24 million. Its central location means that it is only 1 hour 40 minutes to Tokyo, 50 minutes to Osaka, and 35 minutes to Kyoto all on Japan's convenient bullet train system.
Visit Nagoya Castle, Gifu Castle, and Atsuta Shrine.
Misokatsu and tebasaki top most people’s to-eat lists, but take the time to explore Aichi’s tea fields and sake breweries too.
Home to Toyota, Yamaha, and Mitsubishi. See how the world’s leading corporations do things differently and what makes the Port of Nagoya Japan’s busiest trading port.
Head into Sakae to shop for the world’s leading brands or get lost in Osu Kannon for an eclectic array of boutiques, cafes, thrift shops, markets, and izakaya dining.
