Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Explore Nagoya's surroundings by going to Ise (Okageza, Okage Yokocho, & more) and Inuyama Castle (in Inuyama). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Nagoya Castle, take in panoramic vistas at Nagoya TV Tower, steep yourself in history at Kangaku-ji Temple, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium.

Takayama
Hidden high up in the Japanese Alps, Takayama remained largely cut off from the rest of Japan for centuries, allowing the local culture to grow in relative isolation.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Takayama: The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Gassho Style Houses (in Shirakawa-mura), Matsumoto (Matsumoto Folkcraft Museum (Matsumoto Mingei-kan) & Matsumoto Castle) and Kanazawa (Kanazawa Castle, Higashichaya Old Town, & more). Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Takayama Jinya, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, see the interesting displays at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall, and have fun and explore at Hida Takayama Retro Museum.

For ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Takayama road trip website .
