Nagoya (名古屋市, Nagoya-shi) is the largest city in the Chūbu region of Japan. It is Japan’s fourth-largest incorporated city and the third most populous urban area.

Located on the Pacific coast on central Honshu, it is the capital of Aichi Prefecture and is one of Japan’s major ports along with those of Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Yokohama, and Chiba. It is also the center of Japan’s third-largest metropolitan region, known as the Chūkyō metropolitan area.

As of 1 October 2019, 2,327,557 people lived in the city, part of Chūkyō metropolitan Area’s 10.11 million people, making it one of the 50 largest urban areas in the world. Worth visiting are Edo era buildings in Shikemichi. Nagoya Castle, which was being used as a military command post, was hit and mostly destroyed in May 1945, followed by the Yokkaichi Bombing in June 1945. Reconstruction of the main building was completed in 1959.
