Industrial tourism, F-1 racing and great fun at the amusement park

The Nagashima and Suzuka area connects the industrial areas of Nagoya with the world through this port on the placid Ise Bay. You can soak in a hot spring, visit amusement parks and gardens, catch an auto race or explore the harbor landscape at night.

How to Get There

Nagashima and Suzuka are near Nagoya and accessible by train, bus or car.

The Kintetsu and JR Lines both serve Yokkaichi, the nearest city. The trip takes about two hours from Osaka Namba Station and 30 to 40 minutes from Nagoya Station.

Suzuka Circuit is best reached by car, but a combination of trains and buses can get you there from Osaka Namba Station in two hours and Nagoya Station in one hour.

The location of Nagashima Resort near Nagoya provides easy access from the city and Chubu International Airport. Buses take between 35 to 50 minutes from Nagoya Station, while a non-stop shuttle bus from the airport takes 50 minutes.

The lights of Yokkaichi harbor at night

At night, the labyrinthine sprawl of refineries, storage tanks and other industrial structures presents a dazzling sight. The lights of the harbor present an excellent photographic opportunity. The ample lighting makes it easy to get a great shot.

There are plenty of great viewing spots. A night cruise offers the closest perspectives, while the Umi-Terasu 14 observation deck at the top of the Yokkaichi Port Building is excellent for wider panoramic views. If you're looking for something free, you still have plenty of options on the parks, bridges and river banks you'll find up and down the shore.

Watch the races at Suzuka Circuit

The track here is arguably the best in western Japan and is one of the venues for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Like Nagashima Resort , there is plenty for the little ones to enjoy thanks to the amusement park next to the track. No matter your age, you can enjoy driving the go-carts and other vehicles here and soaking up the racing atmosphere.

Sun and fun at Nagashima Resort

Nagashima Resort is a world of fun for kids of all ages and adults alike just outside Nagoya. It has a hot spring complex, a water park and an outlet mall, but the biggest draw is Nagashima Spaland. Nagashima Spaland has over 40 rides that range from simple rides for small kids to scream-inducing roller coasters.

For a more relaxing experience, Nagashima Resort also includes Nabana no Sato Flower Park , which offers fields of flowers, a pond, observation decks and Island Fuji, a man-made island. The park is even more impressive from October to April, when it's lit up by a multi-colored illumination that gives you a truly othwerworldly experience.
