short-term stay visa (“tanki-shouyou visa” in Japanese) from the
embassy of Japan in your country.
Read carefully the Japanese visa guide provided by the ministry of
foreign affairs. For entry into Japan, a VISA may be required for
attendees from some countries.

Travel in Nagoya
Home proud Nagoya,
birthplace of Toyota and pachinko (pinball-style game), is a
manufacturing powerhouse. Although Nagoya's GDP tops that of many
small countries, this middle child has grown accustomed to life in
the shadow of its bigger brothers, Tokyo and Kansai. In contrast to
its industrial core, Nagoya has cosmopolitan aspects including some
fantastic museums, significant temples and excellent shopping. Parks
and green spaces in the inner wards prevail and are well maintained.
Nagoyans take pride in the unpretentious nature of their friendly,
Nagoya sits between Tokyo and Kyoto/Osaka on the Tōkaidō Shinkansen
line. It's the gateway for journeys north into Chūbu's big mountain
heart and a great base for day trips.
