"Diet Coke" Nagoya by Hewer

Nagoya Travel Guide: 468 reviews and 1,330 photos

Having lived in Osaka for seven years, I've managed to get myself to Nagoya three or four times. It's a pretty easy city to navigate and isn't congested or cluttered, although from own perspective, I feel an eerie sense of "otherness" - it's similar to what I'm accustomed to, but in a scaled down version.

Nagoya is like Yokohama in a parallel dimension, the diet coke version of Osaka, or perhaps a regional affiliate of Tokyo Inc. I was bored. It always seems like something is about to happen, but never actually does. Anyway it's unlikely you'll ever visit Japan without seeing at least one other city or locale so you can judge for yourself.
