  Nagoya is the third-largest incorporated city and the fourth most populous urban area in Japan. Located on the Pacific coast in the Chubu region on central Japan, it is the capital of Aichi Prefecture and is one of Japan's major ports along with those of Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Yokohama, Chiba, and Hakata. It is also the center of Japan's third largest metropolitan region, known as the Chukyo Metropolitan Area.

  The name Nagoya is derived from a famous manor in the 12th century called Nagono. The Nagono manor prospered until the middle of the fourteenth century and people continued to call the area "Nagono" long after it had gone. The Chinese characters used to write "Nagono" could also be read "Nagoya" which was later adopted as the city's name.
