    普段なかなか行けないのですが、イベントがあるとすごい人が押し寄せます。 東海市内の学校でチラシが配られるのでなおさらです。 大勢の人を捌けないのは仕方ないかと思いますが、シャトルバスに乗った人が着いたころには人気イベントのチケットが取れなかったり、定時前に車で着いた人も、既にチケットが配られていたため見ることができなかったりと、残念な面があります。

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.
