Nagoya

Nagoya ©
Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Mon): wander the streets of Sakae. Here are some ideas for day two: step into the grandiose world of Nagoya Castle, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Minami Chita Beach Land, and then explore the activities along Yamazaki River.

Plan my Nagoya trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Toronto, Canada to Nagoya is an approximately 18.5- hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of flight, bus, and train; or do a combination of train, shuttle, and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Toronto to Nagoya is 14 hours. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Toronto in June since evenings lows in Nagoya dip to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) so you can take a train to Shizuoka.

With its upmarket shopping districts and scenic coastal landscape, Shizuoka stands as the main urban area of a province often referred to as Japan's riviera.

Here are some ideas for day two: look for gifts at Yaizu Sakana Center, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, then contemplate the waterfront views at Miho Seacoast (Miho no Matsubara Beach), and finally admire the masterpieces at Shizuoka City Serizawa Keisuke Art Museum.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Head to Ginza and Asakusafor some retail therapy. Odaiba and Senso-ji Temple are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Okitsu Beach (in Katsuura) and Kamogawa Sea World (in Kamogawa). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Akihabara, admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, explore the world behind art at Tokyo National Museum, and ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.
