This capital is the third largest city in Japan and is the perfect place to experience the perfect mixture of history and modern technology. The location of Nagoya has been important since the sengoku period of Japan and during the Edo Period, the Owari branch was stationed there as the central power for the Chubu area. Many sengoku fans travel there to visit the famous Nagoya Castle as well as the hometowns of famous warlords like Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu.
