AICHI

NAGOYA

Aichi is a major center of manufacturing. Home of Toyota – Japan’s biggest company.

In Nagoya, There is a ‘Nagoya Castle’. It has ‘shachihoko,’ the golden orcas that on the roof of its castle tower. The inside of the castle is now a modern museum displaying the castle’s history. The castle park becomes a popular hanami spot during the cherry blossom season. Nagoya food is very popular. For example, Hitsumabushi (Grilled Eel on Rice), Misonikomi (Noodle in Miso Broth), Miso-katsu (Pork Cutlet with Thick Miso Sauce), Tebasaki (Japanese-style Fried Chicken) and so on.
