At the centre of the city is Nagoya Station, the city’s primary train station and one of the world’s largest railroad hubs. Directly above the station are the JR Central Towers. The towers house luxury hotels as well as viewing decks, bars and day spa amenities.

Just on the edge of town is theToyota Automobile Museum. Here you can see classic car models a well as luxury American and European cars from one of the main automobile manufacturers in Japan.

Enjoy the sereneAtsuta Shrine. This shrine, which is one Japan’s most sacred sites, is only a short train ride from Nagoya Station. The shrine’s woodland surroundings make it the ideal place to relax after a day seeing the city's sights.

Feast on some of Nagoya’s renowned cuisine. For an authentic dining experience, try hitsumabushi (grilled eel) which is served with rice and broth.
