Restaurant Guide in Aichi

Aichi prefecture in the Tokai region faces the Pacific Ocean. Nagoya city is its capital. It is hot, humid, and muggy in the summer. In winter, dry and cold wind called “Ibuki oroshi” blows, but it seldom snows. Nagoya is known for producing many military generals such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu during the country’s Warring Stat

e period. During the Edo period, Tokugawa Ieyasu built Nagoya Castle for his ninth son, Yoshinao. Nagoya Castle is considered one of the three most famous castles in Japan along with Himeji Castle and Kumamoto Castle. The golden dolphins gleaming on the rooftop of the great donjon have become a symbol of Nagoya. Although the castle mostly burnt down in the Great Bombing of Nagoya in 1945, part of the architecture was rebuilt and has been reclaimed as Meijo Park. Aichi prefecture is known for its number of automobile related companies as represented by Toyota Motor Corporation headquartered in Toyota city, and it is a center of the Chukyo Industrial Area. It is also the home to the professional baseball team, Chunichi Dragons. The team's mascot, Doara rapidly gained popularity with its comical and acrobatic moves. Seto city in Owari district is known as one of the most famous pottery towns in Japan, and in areas north of Kanto region, pottery is even collectively called setomono (goods of Seto). Located on the Chita Peninsula, which protrudes over the Ise Bay, is the Central Japan International Airport that opened in 2005, as well as many other places where visitors can enjoy marine sports and fresh seafood.
