Tagata Jinjya

Reviewed By Bill C - Vancouver

It took us about an hour to get here from Nagoya Station which involved three different subway/rail lines. The Shrine is about a 10-minute walk from the Tagata-jinja-mae Station.
This Shrine is famous for its annual Harvest Festival on March 15 where a giant wooden phallus is paraded. It’s free entry to the grounds of the Shrine and photos are allowed except when there is a ceremony occurring inside the Shrine. Couples also visit this Shrine and pray for issues regarding fertility.

The Museum Meiji-mura

Beautifully located on a hillside facing Lake Iruka, it occupies an area of 1,000,000m2, where currently over sixty Meiji buildings have been brought and rebuilt. On display inside the buildings are furniture and other items of interst, objects of reference related to the respective buildings, and temporary Exhibitions of historic materials as occasions call. The Meiji-mura offers the Japanese people a place of social education, where they can discover and have first-hand contact with the form and spirit of the Meiji period. We also believe that the Meiji-mura, as an evidence of East-West cultural exchange, can be helpful to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of Japan and other countries of the world.

The best outdoor museum we've ever visited. This place appeals most to Japanese history buffs and architecture zealots, but it is located on a beautiful hillside spot overlooking a manmade lake and on a nice day it makes for just a nice garden stroll, even if history or architecture isn't your thing. There are about 40 relocated late 19C/early 20C buildings here, half of which require you to remove shoes to enter. On signs outside each building is a good paragraph in English describing the building plus its age and original location. An English brochure is also available at the admission gate. We spent a total of 4 hours and 15 minutes here, walking from beginning to end and back. We viewed almost all properties, entered some, stopped for a snack, a coffee, and a small lunch. The highlight for us was the front and lobby of the original Frank Lloyd Wright designed Tokyo Imperial Palace Hotel. We had coffee in the lobby (disclosure, we live in Wisconsin, the architect's home state, are surrounded by his loyal fans, plus we honeymooned in 1989 in the current version of this hotel). Admission was ¥840/person. The roundtrip bus ride from Nagoya station was ¥1,700/person and took a little over an hour each way. There was an old train that ran most the length of the property, and there were tours given in old period buses. It was a really nice way to spend half a day.

Airport Walk Nagoya

Reviewed By madeang - Manila

Came all the way from Osaka and had a return flight from Nagoya to Manila. Thought we could shop for more at the airport after checking in from immigration. To our dismay, there were no more shops inside the airport and we could not get out anymore. There are nice stores at the airport walk and good restaurants too so better go in after exploring the whole place.

Shimin Shiki no Mori

Reviewed By fakeis - Nagoya, Japan

Public park with various activities for the family including, Large-hill (artificial grass) sled slide, kids play ground, miniature golf course, animal petting zoo, water area (summer only), open grass field and etc. Year-round sled slide is great for small kids. But you need to queue up in a line to get access passes first since they limit it to 30 sleds per 1 round. Pass is given out one every 1 hour and you are allowed to take 4 slides (usually time runs out in 4 slides.)
No food is sold so you MUST bring your own lunch. There isn't any convenience store near the park either. Though there are lots of places for a picnic and BBQ. Parking can be tough since everyone wants to park in the East parking lot which is right next to the sled slide hill and the office that gives out the passes.
But the park overall is a very good way to get out of the city (even though it is relatively close to Nagoya) and enjoy the fresh air and have kids experience bunch of things all at once.
And no parking fee nor entrance fee is quite impressive if you think how well this place is run too. Clean and well maintained for a public park. Good job Komaki city for keeping such a great place for the young family.

Menard Art Museum

Reviewed By Bundtlust - Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan

I worked in Komaki for six months, and visited the Menard Art Museum several times during my stay. The Menard Art Museum features quite a good collection of European paintings and sculpture by Picasso, Manet, Monet, Renoir, Magritte, Van Gogh, Rodin, Toulouse-Lautrec, etc. and Japanese pottery, calligraphy, and paintings totaling over 1,400 pieces in all. I was surprised at the big-ticket artists on display for such a small gallery (it took about 40 minutes to go through). Exhibition pieces are changed every two months, so you'll likely see something new with each visit. Well worth an hour or two if you happen to be in town!

Aichi Museum of Flight

Reviewed By べべちゃん - Konan, Japan

小学生と保育園児を連れた4人で行きました。
現地では、物づくりの体験とシアタ-にパイロット体験など子供が楽しめる事があります。ただパイロット体験が朝10時の時点で昼過ぎまでなくなり、30分後には15時からの会と大盛況です。私たちはMRJを午前からとパイロットを15時からを参加しまし〇一日楽しくすごせました。中の展示物はいまいちですが、体験をするには非常にいいと思います。また屋上のハンモックで雲をみながら過ごす時間は最高でした。
あと昼食は隣のエアポ-トウォ-クで食べれますし、エアーポ-トウォ-ク無料駐車場も使えますので非常に便利です。(※推奨:名古屋空港の駐車場ですが、1時間100円必要です。また空港の受付.ミュ-ジアムの受付でバス用チケットをもらわないとバス代が100円必要です。また遠いです。あまりお勧めしません。)
