Fun city with a youthful attitude and a lot of fun somewhat like a mini Tokyo


Nagoya, Japan's third-biggest city after Tokyo and Osaka, is situated in the heart of Aichi Prefecture and is rich in history.

Nagoya is the birthplace of three of Japan's most influential figures: Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Fast forward a few hundred years, and another of Aichi's sons, Kiichiro Toyoda, would found Toyota Motors, a business that has shaped our lives for the past century, and establish Nagoya as one of the country's key industrial centres.

Nagoya is a terrific city to visit since it has great nightlife, a lot of amazing restaurants, and a lot of things to do.

Why Nagoya is the best city to live and study Japanese in Nagoya

  • Nagoya is not one of Japan's most underappreciated cities. It offers everything you might want without being overly overpowering.
  • Though it has all of the amenities of a large metropolis, it is significantly cheaper than other larger cities.
  • Travelling is made simple by an extensive public transportation network that can reach practically every area of the city.
  • The town centre is a hive of activity, with events, restaurants, and places to hang out with friends or classmates.
  • If you like nature, a short ride outside of the city boundaries will take you to Sekigahara valley, or if you want to go on a longer vacation, a day trip to Magome or Shirakawa is a wonderful alternative.
  • A day excursion to Kyoto or maybe Osaka is also doable if you like shinkansen journeys.
  • Nagoya is a vibrant city with much to see and do.
