Aichi

About Aichi

At the center of Japan’s main island of Honshu, Aichi Prefecture is a place of charming historical relevance and enchanting natural hotspots. Replete with onsens and its very own soul-food, Aichi could just offer a home away from home.

The Minami Chita Hot Spring Village with its idyllic coastal views is a must-visit for onsen lovers, with the region’s natural treasures also comprising famous beaches, dotted with inns, shops and eateries. Aichi Prefecture is also home to four national and seven prefectural parks that bloom fresh, vibrant colors with each season. Nagoya Castle is undoubtedly one of the country’s finest and Yotsuya Senmaida — The 1,000 Rice Terraces — at the foot of Mount Kurakake, are a magnificent sight to behold. History buffs will revel in the 12,000 heirlooms at the Tokugawa Art Museum, with its immaculate gardens offering a tranquil oasis in the middle of Nagoya City. Deep fried spicy chicken wings are a local favorite and a bowl of Nikomi Udon, Nagoya’s go-to soul food, will make your tummy smile.
