Thanks to its position opening onto the Pacific, Nagoya has developed into the country’s busiest port and has long been an important manufacturing site of such traditional industries as ceramics and textiles. The ceramics industry was established here in the 12th century and has become somewhat of a tourist attraction thanks to its numerous workshops and factory tours. Many of the city’s historic sites remain, including its 16th-century castle, which like much of the city center, was rebuilt after the destruction of WWII. These days, this large city is a pleasure to visit for its excellent network of wide modern streets, museums, art galleries, and historic temples.
