Description

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.

Your day starts with a visit to Nagoya Castle, a hallowed edifice representing Nagoya's power and grand unification of Japan that its one-time ruler, Tokugawa Ieyasu, led. The sights and stories will regale your sense of artistic appreciation, and your soul as well.

Next, you'll move on to the Tokugawa Museum, where many famous artifacts of this samurai's era are enshrined, with beautiful gardens just next door. After that, it's the rightly famous Atsuta Jingu (Shrine), overflowing with grand edifices, grander trees, and yet still grander history and religious significance. Finally, over to Shiratori Garden, a truly magical natural oasis.

With a knowledgeable guide at your side, you'll learn about Nagoya's history, indulge in a right-sized amount of great art and artifacts, and restore the spirit across two different gardens. No buses, no loudspeakers, no being herded about. This small-group tour brings you the best, and is sure to leave you with lasting memories, as well as stories to tell any Nagoya naysayers you may meet!
