The main attraction is the port's famous Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium. Nearby is also an amusement park and the now-retired Antarctic survey ship Fuji which moors at the Port of Nagoya as a museum of the South Pole and its journeys there.The Isewangan Expressway includes three impressive bridges, collectively known as the Meikō Triton, which span the port.

  • For 700 yen, you can buy a ticket that allows access (no re-entries) to the observation deck on the 7th floor, the Maritime Museum on the 3rd floor, and the Fuji Icebreaker, an Arctic Exploration ship...  more »
  • Located in coastal regions of the Observatory. Connects to the facilities of the port of Nagoya public aquarium. Lower floors are not particularly crowded.

  • Landmark Tower of the harbour are nearly 30 years old. Exhibits are old, but prospects are excellent. Well, it is normal. I hope to enter tourism visitor pass.

  • Make sure to purchase a ticket in combination with the Nagoya Public Aquarium. Personally, I don't think it's worth it if you purchase a ticket for this attraction only... unless you really enjoy a scenic view of the city and the ports of Nagoya.
  • It is better than expected. Take photos free of charge wearing a sailor outfit, I steer the ship and Harbour boat driving simulator is free and, crane operations simulation game. Admission fees are the port of Nagoya public aquarium [(total 2400 yen) and cheap rates would put together the other three facilities (total 700 yen)

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
