  • Inuyama

    Nagoya Off The Beaten Path

    It's a bit of a trek north of Nagoya, but Inuyuma Castle is worth seeing. The castle has the oldest original tower, built in the 1500's. It's quite small, but it's really interesting inside. You get the feel of being in a real castle, not just a tourist trap. There are breathtaking views of the mountains, the river, and Inuyama from the tower. The...

  • Italian Village - Closed

    Nagoya Off The Beaten Path

    Venice? Trieste? Genoa? Nope, none of these. This is "Villagio Italia", and Italian-themed shopping complex by Nagoya harbor. I must say they have done a pretty good job. There are food and fashion stores, bars, restaurants and even a chapel. It covers an enormous area - 53,000 square meters - and you can easily spend an afternoon wandering around....

There's a lot of open park space and there's a big, young forest growing there. There's also a small beach and plenty of walkways. There's a rest facility and a couple of...

  • Toyota - Day Trip

    Nagoya Off The Beaten Path

    Ok, so this is definitely off the beaten path. If you're in Nagoya in July, I suggest you make a visit to the Oiden festival. Oiden means something like 'welcome, please come and have fun'. Many people parade around the main square in Toyota, singing and dancing to the same song, over and over. You can see people wearing almost nothing, beating...

  • Nakasendo Walk -Day Trip

    Nagoya Off The Beaten Path

    Follow Nakasendo trail through rural Japan on foot and by train to Kyoto. A secret side of Japan to the outside world. Stunning vistas from mountain passes and lots of Nature. First stop would be Matsumoto castle. To get a taste of it do a daytrip there and find out whether you'd like it. See travelogue in my Japan page.

  • Takayama

    Nagoya Off The Beaten Path

    TAKAYAMA. 2 hours by shinkansen from Nagoya. It's a great getaway from the bustles of the city. Here, one can observe the olden Japanese way of living & indulge in the slow pace of living. I'll write more about this wonderful town as soon as VT adds a locator for this town.
