NIC Walking Guides

With a population of 2.2 million, Nagoya, the capital of Aichi Prefecture, is the core city of Japan’s fourth-largest metropolitan area.

As commerce and industry prospered, and culture flourished in the Edo Period, Nagoya grew into a thriving metropolis. Nagoya has continued to grow since Ieyasu Tokugawa, founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate Government, built Nagoya Castle in 1612. A culture and tradition of manufacturing blossomed during the Meiji Period and is still evolving today.

These guides have been prepared by Nagoya International Center Volunteers for foreign residents of Nagoya and visitors to the City who are interested in viewing local tourist attractions.

Contained in each guide is a model walking route applicable to the specified area or spot. You will find a variety of cultural and historical attractions situated around the walking course. We hope that you find these guides useful.

The guides are available in a printer-friendly PDF format.
