Nagoya is a city in Japan, the capital of Aichi Prefecture, located in the southern part of Honshu Island (the largest mainland island of Japan). It has a population of about 2,258,908 people (2010) and is the third largest population center and fourth largest city in Japan.

The city began to develop since the beginning of the 17th century when the Japanese leader Tokugawa Eiho-Yasu, the founder of the Tokugawa dynasty, decided to transfer the capital of Uari province from Kyusu, about seven kilometers to Nagoya’s current place in 1610. Nagoya Castle was built from materials taken from Kyusu Castle About 60 thousand workers were involved in its construction. After a while, the Atsuta Shrine became a Mia station on Tokaido Road, which links Tokyo with Kyoto. A town was built around the shrine to serve travelers, and with the years, Nagoya Castle and the town around the shrine grew up in it.
