    Inuyama

    Inuyama features a magnificent 16th century castle built in the Sengoku period which overlooks the Kiso river and is one of the 12 original ones still left in Japan. Free tours by volunteer guides on the history and design of the building are available in English and Japanese. The panoramic views from the top are famous but visitors should be prepared for the steep climb that comes before. Inuyama castle is a little bit outside Nagoya but is surrounded by wonderful parks, cafes and shopping streets.

    The West Shore Park in Akabane Nishi Kaigan is an ideal place for surfers and beach lovers.

There’s also a park right next to the beach for visitors that don’t feel like getting their feet wet. The West Shore Park is a great place to stargaze as its at a distance from any big cities and there’s no charge to spend the night.

    Toyokawa

    The Inari Shrine in Toyokawa is considered one of the big three Inari shrines of Japan. The shrine is a medley of different architectural and religious influences, being dedicated to the Sodo sect of Buddhism and home to Inari Okami, the god of fertility and rice as well as the fox god, with literally thousands of red bibed stone foxes present on the precincts of the shrine. Besides the shrine, there’s a little market street just outside the grounds with charming little restaurants, cafes and shops where you can buy local specialities of fox shaped cookies and cakes.

  • Okazaki

    Okazaki

    Okazaki

    Honda Tadatsugu House in Okazaki was built by the descendants of Honda Tadakatsu, a daimyo of the late Sengoku period and one of the four Heavenly Kings, fierce defenders of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first Shogun of Japan. Tadakatsu’s descendants built this family home in 1932 and is an excellent example of the Western building types influencing aesthetics in Japan. The building has Spanish, French and British influences on the exterior and interior spaces which are melded with local Japanese tastes. The house is open to the public and is an excellent stop for students of Japanese history.
