Nagoya Kochin is one of Japan’s most famous chicken breeds, raised in the Nagoya area.

Komaki City is located just north of Nagoya City in Aichi Prefecture. It is known as the home to Tagata Jinja Shrine, the infamous site of the Honen Festival, which is an annual fertility festival that features portable shrines topped with massive, phallic-shaped structures. Lovers of nature and traditional architecture should check out Mt. Komaki, which is topped by Komaki Castle, and offers stunning views of sakura (cherry blossom) trees blooming in spring. The Komaki City Historical Museum is a haven for history buffs, with suits of samurai armor and other well-preserved relics.
