    Delta Airlines primarily operates a hub and spoke route system with hubs in Amsterdam, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and here in Japan, they have 3 major hubs, Tokyo Narita International Airport, Osaka Kansai International Airport and here in Nagoya Centrair International Airport. Delta is the world's Second largest airline in terms of domestic and international scheduled passenger miles flown and the U.S. Delta Airlines carries more passengers across the Pacific Ocean than any other U.S. carrier hence it is a favorite of asians like me for transpacific flights and the easy accruage of air mileage in its Skymiles program.

It is the gateway to Central Japan and to historic Nagoya City and to the Japanese Alps. it has one large maint terminal. The Airport is shaped like a "T," with three piers radiating from a central ticketing area. The northern side of the terminal holds domestic flights, while the southern side holds international flights, each with dedicated ticket counters, security checkpoints and baggage carousels, and for international flights, immigration and customs facilities. There is a huge shopping area at the 4rth floor of the domestic area called Sky Town Shopping Center and an International Duty Area filled with luxe stores at the 3rd floor of the International Area.

    Nagoya Subway Lines

    by Rabbityama Updated Oct 4, 2012

    As one of Japan's largest cities, Nagoya has a subway system to help people get around. There are four major lines.

    From Nagoya Station, you can catch the Sakura-dori Line (red) or Higashiyama Line (yellow). The Higashiyama Line runs north and south. Some of its stations with nearby attractions, include:
    -Nakamura Koen Station: Toyokuni Shrine
    -Kamejima Station: Noritake Garden
    -Nagoya Station: Central Towers, Spiral Tower
    -Fushimi Station: Nagoya City Science Museum, Electricity Museum
    -Sakae Station: Nagoya TV Tower, Oasis 21
    -Shinsakae-machi Station: Yamazaki Mazak Museum
    -Ikeshita Station: Furukawa Museum
    -Motoyama Station: Toganji Temple
    -Higashiyama Koen Station: Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Garden

    It is the most convenient for connecting you to Sakae Station, which is on the Meijo Line (purple).

    The Sakura-dori Line connects to the Meijo Line at Hisaya-Odori Station. Not many sites are located along the Sakura-dori Line, but Sakurayama Station is near the Nagoya City Museum.

    The Tsurumai Line (blue) does not go to Nagoya Station but you can transfer there in just one stop by taking the Higashiyama Line to Fushimi Station where you can transfer. The Tsurumai Line's stations with attractions include:
    -Sengen-cho Station: Nagoya Noh Theater, Nagoya Castle
    -Fushimi Station: Nagoya City Science Museum, Electricity Museum
    -Osu Kannon Station: Osu Kannon Temple

    The Meijo Line is Nagoya's equivalent to Osaka's Loop Line and Tokyo's Yamanote Line. It does a loop around the city and its stations are convenient for many of the city's tourist destinations. Here are some of the stations listed with nearby attractions:
    -Sakae Station: Nagoya TV Tower, Oasis 21
    -Higashi Betsuin Station: Higashi Betsuin Temple
    -Kanayama Station: Nagoya-Boston Museum of Fine Arts
    -Jingu Nishi Station: Atsuta Shrine, Shirotori Garden
    -Yagoto Station: Koshoji Temple
    -Motoyama Station: Toganji Temple
    -Ozone Station: Tokugawa Museum, Tokugawaen Garden
    -Shiyakusho Station: Nagoya Castle

    The Meiko Line (also purple) is connected to the Meijo Line Line. It branches off at Kanayama Station. The Meiko Line will take you to Nagoyako Station, the port, which has Nagoya Aquarium.

    Getting to Nagoya

    by Rabbityama Written Oct 2, 2012

    Nagoya has three different railway operators with their own stations side by side: Nagoya Station (JR), MeitetsuNagoya Station (Meitetsu Railway), and KintetsuNagoya (Kintetsu Railway).

    Most people will probably come using JR trains. Since Nagoya Station is a Shinkansen station, those traveling from anywhere around the Shinkansen line, especially from far away, will find it very convenient to visit Nagoya. People from parts of Shizuoka, Gifu, Shiga, and other places around Aichi Prefecture can reach Nagoya in a reasonable amount of time and save money by using local trains.

    If you are coming from Mie Prefecture or Nara Prefecture, you can best get to Nagoya using Kintetsu Railway. Nagoya's Kintetsu station is KintetsuNagoya Station. There are Limited Express trains that you can purchase to get here faster but the local express trains are cheap and reasonably fast.

    Meitetsu Railway will only be convenient for people coming from certain places within the prefecture, since that is the extent of most of the railway. Outside of Aichi Prefecture, only those coming from Mitake (in Gifu) will save money by using Meitetsu Railway. If you are in Gifu City, you will save 100 yen if you come from JR Gifu Station instead of MeitetsuGifu, but it may be worth the extra money if you are going to stop at some station en route or if you are one of those people who enjoys the experience of riding in the private companies rather than JR.

    Getting to Nagoya Castle 1

    Take Subway Line
    4 more images

    There are two ways to get to Nagoya castle. One way is to use Me~Guru, the sightseeing bus service to major destinations for flat fee of 200 yen. But last time I went to Nagoya I used subway instead because I stopped by Meijo Park before visiting Nagoya castle. Using subway to Nagoya castle used to be the only way to the castle and many still do though the train fee is 30 yen higher than Me~Guru bus service. To get to Nagoya castle from Nagoya station first take Higashiyama Line from Sakuradori Exit. Change trains at Sakae and take Meijo line bound for Shiyakusho and Ozone. Shiyakusho station is the second stop from Sakae. From Shiyakusho station, East Gate of Nagoya Castle is closer and less crowded than Main Gate and it is closer to Ninomaru Garden and the tea house as well.

    Is Shichiri-no-Watashi Ferry Still In Service?

    A Sign for special ferry service to Kuwana
    1 more image

    Shichiri-no-Watashi ferry, 28-kilometer-long ferry service between #41 Tokaido station MIYA(Atsuta) and #42 Kuwana had been essential part of Tokaido travel between Edo(Tokyo) and Kyoto. In 1871 three years after Meiji Restoration, the ferry route was banned. And Tokaido Rail Line and the Route 1 in late 19th century completely changed the situation. And the ferry service was buried just in memory.

    In 2008 Shichiri-no-Watashi ferry returned for the first time in 130 years though it was only for special events. Lucky Tokaido walkers can have three-hour ride to Kuwana or vice versa for the ticket price of 3,500 yen. This year(2011) the special ferry service to Kuwana is slated on September 24, October 15, October 29 and November 3. According to the organizer of special ferry service, details will be announced on August 8.

    Tsuruma Park and Higashiyama Park(Zoo and Botanical Garden) are often toured together particularly during cherry viewing season in early April. First take Chuo line bound for Tajimi and change trains at Chikusa. From Chikusa take Higashiyama Subway Line bound for Fujigaoka. Sometimes Higashiyama Park is referred to as Higashiyama Koen. Koen is the Japanese word for Park. Take off the train at Higashiyama Koen station. After taking a few minutes uphill walk you reach the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Garden.

    The Bullet Train! Shinkansen in Japanese.

    by Sharrie Updated Apr 4, 2011

    I took the bullet train from Tokyo to Hiroshima & then to Nagoya. Nagoya is about 3 hours from Tokyo & very close to Kobe & Kyoto. Hiroshima is further west & takes about 5 hours from Tokyo. IMHO, the best way to get around the island of Honshu is by the bullet trains. Regular service, punctual & comfortable. For a tourist, the 7 days Japan Rail pass is indispensable. Get it before leaving home!

    It's a flexible plastic card which you can buy at vending machines at any subway stations in Nagoya.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great way to travel around Nagoya city cheaply.
    It stops around the major areas in Nagoya like Sakae and JR Nagoya station.

    If you buy the Me-guru pass, it's 500yen for an unlimited amount of travel for a single calendar day.
    If not a single ride is 200yen for adults.

    If you can read Japanese, this website is an invaluable source of information to plan your trips on buses.
    http://kotsuk.city.nagoya.jp/route/web/exp.cgi
    You can type the boarding and alighting stops (in japanese of course) and it shows you the schedule.
    Or you can check out individual stops and see what buses are available and where it goes.

    Shinkansen

    The Shinkansen is by far the most convenient way to travel around Japan. Unfortunately it isn't very cheap! Luckily there is a Japan JR Rail Pass available to foreign travellers. See the JR East website for details:

    It must be bought abroad and stamped in Japan before you can use it. There are several options including one week (unlimited JR travel except for the super fast Nozomi service), two week, JR East and JR West passes. Check with your local travel agent for the best option or click on the link to see for yourself!

    Here is a link to a very cool page that lets you see the routing between cities/stations/ports within Japan. It will tell you the route and includes the cost and time. http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/norikae/.

    I have also found this website which is extremely useful, in English with details of timetables all over Japan.

    Shinkansen from Nagoya to Shizuoka

    by kiwigal_1 Written Feb 3, 2009

    It would take 1 1/2 hours on the Kodama Shinkansen from Nagoya to Shizuoka which is on the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen lines.
    The Hikari Shinkansen (faster) takes an hour and stops at less places on the way.

    The following website might be useful:

    Nagoya International Airport opened in February of 2005 just in time for 2005 World Expo in Aichi. It’s the third offshore airport in Japan. This airport is so friendly that you can go up to the roof top to watch your friends/family's plane take off. The accessible bathroom is so huge that there is even a bench inside if you need to rest.
