Nagoya Itinerary

10 April 2015

As part of the recent birthday trip to Kansai, we stopped by Nagoya and spent a day there. It was my first time there and I was quite excited about visiting!

Fun fact: Aichi prefecture (which Nagoya is in) used to be called Owari, which is the main area of focus in the drama that I just finished and loved, which made me extra excited about Nagoya hehe.

Although we only spent a short day there, we visited several interesting places!

This is our Nagoya itinerary; links to individual posts will be added as the posts are written!


8am: Left house. Due to arrive in Nagoya at 12pm

3pm: Arrived in Nagoya 3 hours late due to massive traffic congestion in Tokyo >_>

NAGOYA CASTLE

First stop was the most famous landmark in Nagoya: Nagoya Castle!

Decided to quickly go before it closed; thankfully we made it and finished seeing the whole castle. We finished just as the castle was closing!

HITSUMABUSHI

We endured our hunger pangs for Nagoya Castle, but were so glad to fill our starving tummies with Nagoya’s famous food: Hitsumabushi, or barbecued eel over a bowl of rice.

One word: Delicious!

OSU SHOPPING DISTRICT

Popped by to see one of the biggest shopping areas in Nagoya.

PRO TIP: Avoid coming on Wednesdays (like we did :C ) as many shops set their day off on Wednesdays.

NABANA NO SATO

This place is beautiful!It’s one of our favorite places on this trip!

And yes, I took the photo. Very nice, right?! :D

CAPSULE HOTEL

I chose to stay in rather unique places on this road trip, and this capsule hotel is one of them!

I actually enjoy it more than I expected. A lot more!

In fact, I would be more than happy to stay there again!

ps: geh. crappy photo quality compared to the others above cause I had to stealthily take it using my iPhone as the hotel doesn’t allow photos. Shhh.
