Nagoya, the Jewel of Japan

By Seong-hyun Sung. Posted on February 1, 2013

In Japan, and especially in Nagoya, there are a lot of good places to enjoy visiting. I enjoyed sightseeing at many places, including the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, and SCMAGLEV and Railway Park. At the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, I learned the history of the automobile and what the future holds for people and automobiles.
People say that the world fell in love with the automobile in the 20th century. I also fell in love with the automobile, because this place was so awesome.

Do you know about Nagoya TV Tower? I have lived in Japan for three months. I like Nagoya TV Tower because seeing it helps me feel better when I am stressed. I hope you don't miss seeing it!

The most impressive place was Nagashima Spaland, of which I have the most vivid memories. We enjoyed both the spa and the amusement park here. In fact, I wasn't even sure I was in Japan when I arrived at Nagashima Spaland. I couldn't see how it differed from Korean spas, except for the notices in Japanese and the exotic trees. However, unlike other spas, it had lots of special places inside. The facilities were arranged well, and I felt that staying at the spa would be better than going around the amusement park.

Afterward, we ate Tonteki there, which was very delicious. Tea was served instead of water, and I liked it very much. I was worn out after the two-day trip, but I felt happy thanks to the good memories I had. The more people you travel with, the more meaningful a trip is.
On the way back to my residence in the bus, I thought I might go back there again with my family later.
Have you heard the word "Obliviate?" This was a magic spell in Harry Potter that would erase memories. Being here gives me the same sense of comfort as having Obliviate cast on me. In short, I recommend that you visit Japan, and Nagoya especially. You will not regret it if you come.
