Flights to Nagoya
Nagoya, the fourth most populous urban area in
Japan, is located on the Pacific Coast of the Chubu region in central Honshu Island.Nagoya is the capital of the Aichi
Prefecture, and is a major port alongside that of Osaka, Tokyo, Yokohama and
others.Though the metropolitan area had
a staggering population of 8.74 million in 2000, the city itself has a lower
population of 2,235,000 as of 2008.In
1610, Tokugawa Ieyasu moved the capital of the Owari Province from the city of
Kiyosu to present-day Nagoya-- a seven kilometer trip, to its more strategic
location.Nagoya Castle was built
partially from materials from Kiyosu Castle, along with the relocation of about
60,000 people-- even temples and shrines.Not far away, the ancient Atsuta Shrine was used as a way-station on the
important Tokaido, which linked the two capitals of Kyoto and Edo (now
Tokyo).The town developed and thrived
as a place of support for travelers.In
the years to come Nagoya would become an industrial hub for the region, with
the famous pottery towns of Tokoname, Tajimi and Seto.Okazaki, another neighboring town was the
only place where gunpowder was produced under the shogunate.Its other industries included cotton, and the
production of complex 'mechanical' dolls, called karakuri ningyo.
The two most prominent sights to see in Nagoya are those that helped the town
flourish in its earliest of times:Nagoya
Castle, and Atsuta Shrine.Nagoya Castle, built in 1612, was partially burned in World War II and
restored in the late-fifties-- adding more modern features, such as
elevators.Behold the two breathtaking Golden
Orca on the structure's roof which are often referred to as the symbol of
Nagoya.The Atsuta Shrine is
known as the second-most vulnerable ancient shrine in Japan.The Atsuta Shrine is believed to be home to
the famed Kusanagi sword, which is one of the three imperial regalia of
Japan.Its grounds are host to roughly
70 festivals per year, with many visitors still flocking in non-festival
times.Uniquely enough, the shrine also
holds over 4,400 national treasures that represent its 2,000 year history.
