Arriving in Nagoya this morning, make your first stop Uotaro Honten. A large fish market located on the bay, over 400 varieties of fresh seafood from the Ise and Mikawa Bay are sold here. See the different fresh and dried seafood, enjoy some freshly prepared seafood, or cook them yourself at the barbeque area.
With the prawn being the official fish of Aichi, it is no surprise that one of their most popular souvenirs is a prawn rice cracker. At Ebi Senbei no Sato, you can find the many different varieties of prawn crackers, see how they are made, and even make one for yourself!
Take a stroll at Tokugawa Garden later this afternoon. Built with the natural landscapes of Japan in mind, the garden features many elements such as a large pond, waterfalls, streams, rock arrangements and many flowers and plants. Especially beautiful when bathed in the colours of autumn, the garden is a pleasant spot for a relaxing stroll.
You will have some free time in Nagoya City this evening to enjoy shopping and eating in the fourth largest city in Japan. Go shopping at the many department stores around Nagoya Station, or head to Sakae, Nagoya’s most well-known shopping district filled with both brand name stores and shopping arcades. Try some of Nagoya’s specialty dishes like tebasaki, miso katsu, or hitsumabushi for a local dinner.
