Nagoya is the largest city within the Chubu region of Japan and is the capital city of the Aichi Prefecture. The city is also the fourth-biggest incorporated city in the country and ranks third in Japan’s most populous urban areas. Situated on the Pacific Coast, Nagoya plays an important role as a chief port for Japan. In 1889, during the Meiji Restoration, Nagoya was declared a city and subsequently transformed into a key industrial hub for the country, known for manufacturing textiles, ceramics, and the like. However, like most parts of Japan, Nagoya was heavily damaged by US air raids and bombings during the Second World War.
After the war was over, Nagoya was successfully rebuilt and continued serving as a major port. The city has become a center for aviation and automotive, with big brands such as Toyota and Lexus establishing their headquarters here. In addition, Nagoya is also one of Japan’s most popular tourist destinations due to its plethora of world-class cultural institutions.

Top Things to Do
While it is often overshadowed by other Japanese cities like Tokyo and Osaka, Nagoya offers plenty of opportunities for fun and adventure and is a city that you shouldn’t sleep on. From its rich history, marvelous architecture, cultural experiences, and diverse food scene, you won’t run out of things to do when in Nagoya.
Because of its rich and colorful history, it’s no surprise that Nagoya is home to numerous museums and cultural establishments that tell the story of the city’s heritage. For history buffs and culture vultures, the following museums are definitely worth checking out:
Tokugawa Art Museum: One of, if not Nagoya’s most popular museum, the Tokugawa Art Museum is a great place to learn about the history of the city. The museum has a collection of over 100,000 treasures owned by the Owari Tokugawa family, including the national treasure “The Picture Scroll of Tale of Genji,” which is put on display annually for a limited time. The Tokugawa Family amassed massive wealth during the Edo Period, and the family’s collection includes valuable artifacts such as samurai armors and swords, noh masks, scrolls, costumes, and more. Next to the museum is the lush Tokugawa Garden, a great place to visit after touring the museum. (Bag policy: Guests may not bring large bags or backpacks inside the facility. As an alternative, find a Bounce location near the museum and leave your things there.)
Nagoya City Art Museum: Established in 1988 and designed by prominent architect Kurokawa Kishu, the Nagoya City Art Museum is one of Nagoya’s most fascinating museums. Situated on the northwest side of Shirakawa Park, the museum is home to a collection of local and international works. These works are divided into four categories – Contemporary Art, Ecole de Paris, Local Artists, and Mexican Renaissance. Some of the artists whose works are featured in the museum are Yamamoto Kansuke, Amedeo Modigliani, Frida Kahlo, Maurice Utrillo, and Marc Chagall. (Bag policy: Oversized bags or luggage are prohibited inside the galleries. Instead, drop off your things at a Bounce partner within the area.)
Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art: Found in the downtown Sakae District, the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art is an urban-style facility that mainly exhibits pieces from the 20th century. The museum’s incredible collection features about 7,700 artworks from famous Japanese and foreign artists, including the likes of Picasso, Gustav Klimt, Matisse, and Taikan Yokoyama. (Bag policy: The museum imposes size limits on guests’ bags. To avoid any issues, leave your things with Bounce before your visit.)
