Nagoya

Filed under: Chubu, Domestic, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 5:23 am

On our trip, we had only half a day in Nagoya. We wanted to go on a free factory tour I had found out about, but they only had tours they were offering in the afternoon, so we unfortunately couldn’t go.

After Nagoya castle (which I’ll post pictures of later because I decided it was too similar to Osaka castle to post them right after one another), we had an hour and a half free before we had to be back at Nagoya station to meet a friend. We weren’t sure what we could do in that time, but my travel buddy found a park we could walk around halfway between the castle and Nagoya station, so we headed over there.

  1. Why Anne Bancroft in particular? She is a great actress who played the infamous Mrs. Robinson in “The Graduate” which takes place partially at Cal.
