The model of a flawless transportation infrastructure in Japan

  • Nagoya's remarkable location

Domestic or international—no matter where to, the secret
to easy travel lies in this massive transportation infrastructure

Looking back on Nagoya's history, one can see that even long ago, it flourished as one of the 53 post towns situated along the highly traversed old Tokaido Road. You can also see today how the city continues to expand its strategic position as a transportation hub. It currently offers land, sea, and air transportation, and is especially blessed with its incredible terminal: Nagoya Station—a stopover for bullet trains, conventional trains, trains on the Meitetsu and Kintetsu lines, and long-distance buses, and even visited by nearly 1-million people a day.
Travel a mere 30 minutes to Central Japan International Airport (Centrair), and once the Linear Chuo Shinkansen maglev line begins operation, shoot from Nagoya to Tokyo in about 40 minutes or Nagoya to Osaka in about 30 minutes.
The city is also home to the Port of Nagoya—a port handling the largest volume of freight in Japan for 17 years running and directly connected to the country's main arteries for land transport—making efficient, integrated land and sea transportation possible.
This is a city putting the entire world within your sight while streamlining business expansion.

Infinite new chances generated
from the center of this super megaregion

After the Linear Chuo Shinkansen starts operation from its proposed date in 2027, the world's widest economic sphere of some 70-million people and super megaregion will be born from the convergence of the three large cities, Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka. Access in no time to any and all companies, people, and commodities either domestic or abroad will be possible, putting Nagoya ahead of the times as a city of dreams.
Become a part of Nagoya—the city at the center of it all—and take hold of the continuous business opportunities to come.
