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 26th (Sat): step into the grandiose world of Hikone Castle, explore the historical opulence of Inuyama Castle, then see the interesting displays at SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kawahara Shrine.

Manila, Philippines to Nagoya is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Manila to Nagoya. When traveling from Manila in October, plan for much colder days and a bit cooler nights in Nagoya: temperatures range from 24°C by day to 19°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) to allow time to take a train to Tokyo.
