About the Nagoya region
With over two million inhabitants, Nagoya is Japan’s fourth most populated city after Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama. It is located in the center of Honshu (the main island of Japan), and it developed as the castle town of the country of Owari, one of the three branches of the ruling Tokugawa Shogun family during the Edo Period (1603-1868). Nagoya is one of the main metropolitan and industrial centers of Japan. As such, the Toyota Motor Corporation maintains its headquarters just outside of Nagoya.
