Nagoya for All.

By Mark Andrews

Travel 3 Sixtyº – Air Asia. April 2014

From castles to cosplay, Nagoya has many playful offerings for a fun family vacation.

A gun toting robot leads, a samurai follows and in between, strides a European girl resplendent with her space age suit and blue hair. Every July, Nishiki Street in the heart of Nagoya is transformed into another world. Starting at Sunshine Sakae, a red carpet is laid out and contestants of the World Cosplay Summit parade in the costumes of their favourite Japanese anime, manga or video game characters.

Nagoya is often overlooked as merely a gateway to the Chubu region of Japan. Whilst the World Cosplay Summit is a spectacle not to be missed, you’ll find fun for the family in Nagoya all year round!
