    Aichi Pref. Tokonameshi Sakaemachi
    This walking path, which runs from the east side of Tokoname Station on the Meitetsu Airport Line and is brimming with history, has been chosen as one of “beautiful Japan’s top quasi 100 historical experiences.” There are two courses: the 1.6-kilometer A Course and 4-kilometer B Course. The A Course contains rows of workshops with brick chimneys and ovens, and the hilly section of the road utilizes discarded pottery materials. The B Course features an archive, a pottery research facility, and other such sites. Both are full of interesting sights and shopping opportunities.

    Really nice and worth the walk It was a hot day, but I enjoy the Pottery Footpath and there were many people on that weekend.

    Aichi Pref. Nagoyashi Higashi-ku Tokugawachou 1001
    This is a Japanese Chisen-kaiyushiki-teien style garden (a stroke-style garden around a big pond) in Nagoya City. The garden got its start in 1695 when Tokugawa Mitsutomo, the second feudal lord of the Owari clan, moved to the “Ozone Yashiki” retirement villa, the construction of which he had personally overseen. The garden is a condensed representation of Japan’s nature with clear streams flowing down into a central pond symbolizing the ocean, arranged with hills, a peony garden and iris patch that all combine to produce a beautiful landscape. There is also the Tokugawa Art Museum and a French restaurant that looks out over the garden filled with flowers in all four seasons and which is a lovely place to appreciate the new leaves in spring and the changing colors of the leaves in autumn.

Aichi Areas

around-area-map

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
