Japan, Nagoya: The City of Samurais and Night Life – VIDEO

Published: 27.12.2016
Nagoya is the third largest city in Japan. Many forget to visit it, unfortunately. There are many interesting places and should you have enough time, spend there a day and night at least. You won't regret.

Nagoya emerged around a castle. I recommend to start your tour there. Its main tower houes a museum which gives you a closer look at the history of the city, local samurais, and the castle, of course. Several scale models will provide oyu with better understanding of the castle's construction and you will better comprehend how such a massive structure can even hold together. There is an amazing vista from its top floor. You can see gardens, skyscrapers, and even mountains in the distance surrounding Nagoya. However, the ocean is too far away.

At the castle, I got a taste of one of the best "green" ice cremas in Japan. And I certainly recommend to try this peculiar Japanese specialty. Like many other sweets, this ice cream also contains grounded green tea – matcha.

Walk even through the gardens surrounding the castle. Stop by at at least one traditional tea shop. This time to have real tea and some small desert.

Were you interested in technology, visit local Science and Technology Museum. There is even a planetarium of very original design. There is a rocket in front of the museum. It was used to get satellites onto orbit.

At the begining, I mentioned that you should stay a day and night in Nagoya. There is a reason for that. This city is known across Japan for its bars and clubs. To experience true Japanese night life (quite crazy by my standards) Nagoya is one of the best places. Moreover, you will experience great food, which is overall excelent in Japan. Don't worry to try strange meals. Some will not be according to your taste but some you will long remember (in a positive way).

The capital of Japan seems endless. And it is sort of true- it is not just one city but it is seamless megalopolis in the Kanto region. Around 40 million people live there. Still, it is very easy to feel there like in a small town.

When you see it on a map it looks rather unremarkable, an archipelago in east Asia. Yet it is a country of amazing history, traditions, nature, and it is an economic powerhouse. You can expect anything before your first trip to Japan. Be sure that the country will surprise you anyway. Perhaps even more than you think.
