Nagoya is to Japan what Detroit is to the United States. It is the birthplace of Toyota, home to Honda and Mitsubishi and an epicenter of Japanese robot technology. This is quite a feat to accomplish given that nearly half of Japanese aircraft in Second World War were produced here and that the city was leveled to the ground due to American bombings in the same period and for the same reason. Fast forward to 2016, and you would find Nagoya as a modern metropolis with a profound cultural and historical identity that revolves around its beautiful temples, museums, castles, shrine, gardens and skyscrapers. Also of note here are a Honbasho Sumo wrestling tournament and Nagoya Castle Summer Night Festival that take place in July and August respectively.
Toyota had started as a textile firm but meticulously evolved into an international automobile giant over a few decades. The Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology is built where one of Toyota's original loom factories once used to stand, and it tells the story of this magnificent transformation through a transitional depiction of large loom machinery and car display halls, the latter being flanked by an assortment of interactive science exhibits and some hi-tech robots.JR SCMAGLEV & Railway Park
The Japanese sizzlers called JR SCMaglev and Shinkansen are the world’s fastest trains. In this museum, you would find them both along with a display of 39 full-size railway vehicles, one bus exhibit, some train cab simulators and railway model dioramas that tell a beautiful story of how Japanese aerodynamic and mechanical engineering have evolved in unison since 1922 AD.Atsuta Shrine
Atsuta Shrine houses the legendary and sacred sword called Kusanagi no Mitsurugi. It is considered one of the three Imperial regalia of Japan and nobody apart from the Japanese emperor and his priests can get to see it. Along with this sword lie the shrines of the ‘five great gods of Atsuta’ and more than 4000 artifacts of historic significance, central to which are sacred garments, furniture and utensils for use of the enshrined deities.
