Insider's Guide to Nagoya, Japan

Nagoya is Japan's 4th populous city and often overlooked by travelers. In my opinion there really is no good reason for that.

If you are planning on taking lots of subways and buses there are day passes available. Nagoya has a subtropical climate. This means summers (July to September) can get very hot and humid with temperatures around 35 degrees Celsius, winters (December to February) are cool around 10 degrees. This makes spring and...
