Visions of Nagoya : Japan

While living in Asia Japan was one of my favorite travel destinations. My few visits to Tokyo and Kyoto and the surrounding areas were very memorable and so after living Asia I wondered whether I’ll ever be able to make it back and perhaps even linger for a bit. Luckily, the last summer had a conference in my field taking place in Nagoya, and so I decide it’s a good opportunity to come in for a visit.

Nagoya isn’t Tokyo, and it definitely isn’t Kyoto. Nagoya is, well, it’s a city, and there isn’t much to make it very memorable, aside from being the usual hectic Japanese. What it does have to offer is a bit of an insight into the industrial Japan, with the large auto manufacturers being based in the area. There is also a bit of reconstructed history in the form of the newly rebuilt Nagoya castle, and some Japanese funky culture here and there, but overall, there aren’t too many reasons to linger in Nagoya. Also, I should have known, the Japanese August summer is intolerable, there’s very little you can enjoy with ~35c high-humidity weather. Which is why, after the conference was over, I made my way up to Hokkaido in northern Japan, to cool off a bit and enjoy natural scenery.

 

Still, I did get to see and do a bit around Nagoya, so here’s a bit from my visit…
