When is the best time to come to Nagoya?
The best months to visit Nagoya are March, April and May. Days are mostly dry and sunny. Cherry blossoms usually begin blooming at the end of March to early April.
How many days to spend in Nagoya?
I don’t recommend visiting Nagoya if you have only a week and this is your first visit to Japan. However, if you have enough time and want to visit the Toyota Museum or other remarkable places, I think 1-2 days will be enough to cover the most interesting sights and gems of Nagoya.
What to try in Nagoya?
Is Nagoya worth visiting with kids?
Nagoya is very kids-friendly with some really nice activities for the whole family. Don’t miss Port Of Nagoya Public Aquarium, The Tokugawa Art Museum, Planetarium and Higashiyama Zoo with gorillas.
