History proves it:
The origin of industry lies in Nagoya

Nagoya has an unbroken, continuing history in production. It's lumber industry developed in the olden days when the rich abundance of Kiso cypress was managed by the former Owari domain (present-day area of the Prefecture of Aichi). The advanced technology born from the craftsmen of those days developed into the present, leading way to the area's clockmaking, train car, and aviation industries.
The availability of clay suited to pottery also led to a prosperous ceramics industry, paving the way for the area's current position as the country's largest producer of fine ceramics. Additional industries from the silk industry to the loom industry, and even the automobile industry also began here.
This history of continuously developing new types of business makes Nagoya a manufacturing mecca as well as the starting point for other industries.
