Walking Nagoya 8 – Atsuta
I cycled from central Chikusa to Atsuta Shrine, aiming to complete a round trip, including bike parking, exploration, lunch, all within a tight three-hour timeframe. However, for longer journeys, I’ll need to rely on the subway. It’s not a problem, though, as the heat and humidity are beginning to pick up, and cycling in such…
Walking Nagoya 7 – Kawana
For walk 7, I headed towards Kawana in Shōwa Ward. I strolled through the park, wandered the surrounding neighborhood, and had lunch at Kawahara Shrine.
Walking Nagoya 6 – Sakae and Ikeshita
Torrential rain. Floods here and there, everyone soaked through. I dropped my daughter off at pre-school, changed into wet-weather gear, and got walking. It was like this only a few weeks ago and the rainy season is yet to come.

Walking Nagoya 2 – Imaike and Ikeshita in the Rain
As mentioned in the previous post , Walking Nagoya is going to span a whole year. Between April 2023 and March 2024, my plan is to capture and post photos once or twice a week, whenever my daughter is at pre-school. Can I make it happen? Possibly.
Walking Nagoya 1 – Tsurumai Park
In rediscovering this routine I’ve got back into a rhythm I once embraced many years ago – quietly observing people as they go about their daily lives. Unlike the Nakasendo or Kisoji people are everywhere. This subtler approach is a style that personally resonates.
