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 Hamamatsu (Hamamatsu Museum of Musical Instruments & Hamamatsu Air Park), Toba (Toba Aquarium & Mikimoto Pearl Island) and Ise (Okage Yokocho, Ise Grand Shrine, & more). There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Nagoya Castle, steep yourself in history at Inuyama Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, and explore the world behind art at Tokugawa Art Museum.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Nagoya vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Chubu Centrair International Airport, Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport and Osaka International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in Nagoya can reach 16°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Wed) early enough to go by car to 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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Thu): explore the historical opulence of Matsumoto Castle, get to know the fascinating history of Higashiyama Walking Course, then learn more about the world around you at Hida Minzoka Mura Folk Village (Hida no Sato), and finally see the interesting displays at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall. On the 29th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get outside with Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, then steep yourself in history at Wada House, and then make a trip to The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Gassho Style Houses.

To see ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Takayama travel route planner.
