Nagoya's impressive castle is not to be missed
Nagoya, birthplace of Toyota and pachinko (a pinball-style game), is the capital of Japan’s Aichi Prefecture, and is a manufacturing and shipping hub in central Honshu. The Naka area is home to museums and the Sakae entertainment district, with attractions like the Sky-Boat Ferris wheel, which is attached to a shopping mall. Nagoya Castle, in northern Naka, is a partly reconstructed 1612 royal home displaying Edo-era artifacts. Popular festivals include the summer festival at Nagoya Castle.
