Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Venture out of the city with trips to Toba Aquarium (in Toba), Hikone Castle (in Hikone) and Ise (Ise Grand Shrine, Okage Yokocho, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Nagoya Castle, examine the collection at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, take a stroll through Sakae, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Atsuta Jingu Shrine.
