Visiting Japan, me and my sons had a 1 night stop in Nagoya.
In the hotel’s lobby we saw that sign that advertised for a 2h tour, on foot, to see a “different Nagoya”, the next morning at 10. We thought it would be a good way to spend our time so we subscribed.
The next morning, we met a lovely Spanish girl who introduced us to the Nagoya she fell in love with.
We learned about temples and shrines, how to pay respect, the peeing sings on the streets, we went to get some unique tea tasting experience directly from the tea producer, we saw small shops with craft-people at work, we learned about the coffee-culture in Japan, at a crossing, we met with 3 majestic figures an cute old man…
If you ask me, this was time well spent.
The tour was very interesting. Our guide spoke English very well and showed us the beautiful hidden sides of Nagoya. We also had a tea experience, which was an experience in itself. If you want to learn more about Nagoya and see the things you normally don’t see, I recommend you this tour!
Thank you very much for your excellent service.
I enjoyed your walking tour a lot and found new places in Nagoya.
Next time when I go to Nagoya, I will join another tour by Nagoya is not boring.
