  • Souvenirs

    Nagoya Local Customs

    Keychains are one of the most common souvenir items. They are very inexpensive and small to store both while traveling home and don't take up much room in a home. Keychains can act as a reminder of the trip since they can be carried around during everyday life. They also are gender and age neutral and can appeal to many types of vacation shoppers...

  • Hierographs and Calligraphy

    Nagoya Local Customs

    If you are interested in the Japanese culture and writing, necessarily go on an exhibition of hieroglyphs. It is very interesting and cognitive. The spelling of hieroglyphs in Japan is considered art.

    Nagoya Local Customs

    Here are a few points of Japanese etiquette that will make your trip go more smoothly. Bowing: Japanese don't shake hands, the bow. The angle of the bow depends on the relationship between the two people.

  • Shrines and Temples

    Nagoya Local Customs

    Scattered throughout Japan are shrines, temples, and other places of worship. The Toshogu shrine pictured here is just another example of the detailed architecture and beautiful trees and gardens which surround them. I can't help but feel at peace here.

  • Foreign Residents

    Nagoya Local Customs

    There are lots of foreigners living in Nagoya.Some of the foreigners have been living in Nagoya for more than 10 years and they consider this place as their second home. Nagoya is a nice place to live and work....I really miss Nagoya and my friends there.

    A democracy is a form of government in which the people, either directly or indirectly, take part in governing. However, the term is also sometimes used as a measurement of how much influence a people has over their government, as in how much democracy exists. The word democracy originates from the Greek "demos" meaning "the people" and "kratein"...

  • Smoking, the rules and regulations

    Nagoya Local Customs

    Not so much a local custom - moreso a wacky local regulation. I saw this at a pedestrian crossing and just had to take a picture. The information on the right advises "No Smoking", whilst the information on the left tells us not to drop our cigarette butts. What should I do if I'm in the middle of a smoke when I see this? Eat it? Unlike most...

  • O-hamani, Cherry Blossom Viewing

    Nagoya Local Customs

    O-hanami means 'flower-viewing'. It happens around the end of every April. This is the time when the Japanese purge themselves of the past year and prepare for the challenges of a new year (May to April represents a year for most businesses and schools in Japan). If you're in Japan during this time, you won't miss hanami. It's going on everywhere...

  • Osu Kannon

    Nagoya Local Customs

    This temple is a 20th-century reconstruction, but worth the visit. You can see Buddhist monks praying and also put a 5-yen coin into a big pot for good luck. They have a flea market here on the 18th and 28th every month, and lots of festivals. The temple is really close to Osu Kannon shopping arcade, another place you must see.

  • Atsuta Shrine

    Nagoya Local Customs

    Some people think that there's not any good traditional Japanese culture in Nagoya. I thought so too until I visited Atsuta. You must check it out. The forest has 500-hundred year old trees. This is probably the most important Shinto shrine in Japan. Check out the website link for more info.
