The Most Dynamic Region of Japan

Greater Nagoya is Japan's third largest metropolitan area after Tokyo and Osaka. Home to front-running companies such as Toyota, Greater Nagoya is clean, safe, and an exciting area to live in.

Located in central Japan, Greater Nagoya functions as the transportation hub of the country making travel to other destinations fast and easy. Moreover, because the area was once the home of warlords in Japan’s ancient times, it is rich in historical sites and Japanese traditional culture, attracting many tourists.

A World Heritage site, Shirakawa-go, is within easy reach, and the city of Kyoto is located only 35 minutes away by Shinkansen. As such, Greater Nagoya is a place where a well-balanced synergy between modern and traditional cultures exist.
