Ask the average Japanese on the street, and they may wonder why you've chosen to visit Nagoya, but you, intrepid traveler, are in the know -- and possibly even ahead of the curve! Nagoya has lots to see, a culture vastly different from both the Tokyo/Yokohama and Kyoto/Osaka areas, and all the urban excitement you'd expect from Japan's third largest metropolis. On this tour, you'll get out of the central Nagoya rut and see a tribute to Nagoya artistic industrial splendor in the form of Noritake no Mori, a showcase of ceramic techniques, facilities, and output of Noritake, a company that's enjoyed international fame across the centuries. From there, it's non-stop: Splendid gardens, an historic shrine, and dive into the wealth, power, and privilege of the samurai of yore. With Nagoya Castle under construction, and other central Nagoya sights needing little explanation, this is the tour for those who really want to get to know Nagoya well!
