A thriving metropolis full of history, Nagoya is best known for its cultural wealth, including theaters, museums, and shrines.

Nagoya is the largest city in the Chubu region of Japan. Nagoya was a major trading city and political seat of the Owari lords, the most important house of the Tokugawa clan. They encouraged trade and the arts under their patronage, especially Tokugawa Muneharu who took a keen interest in drama and plays and lived lavishly. Under his rule, actors and actresses began to visit Nagoya. Arts and culture was further supported by the city's wealthy merchants. During World War II many old buildings and artefacts were destroyed. The region's economic and financial power in the post-war years rekindled the artistic and cultural scene.

Located at the heart of the Japanese Alps, Takayama is a beautiful small town, home to elegant 17C architecture, galleries, and historic temples.

Takayama is a city located in Gifu Prefecture, Japan. Takayama was settled as far back as the Jomon period. The town and its culture, as they exist today, took shape at the end of the 16C, when the Kanamori clan built Takayama Castle. However, the high altitude and separation from other areas of Japan kept the area fairly isolated, allowing Takayama to develop its own culture over about a 300-year period. Its main attractions include the surrounding nature, shrines, museums, and architectural curios.
