Located in the middle of Honshu Island, Aichi is the place where East meets West. Many castle towns prospered in Aichi. Nagoya Castle and Inuyama Castle are especially worth a visit. Industrial tourism is another feature of Aichi because it is famous for Monozukuri (manufacturing), especially in machinery and pottery manufacturing. Tourists can learn more about the spirit of Monozukuri by visiting one of the industrial museums or related facilities such as Toyota automobile museums, Noritake no mori, Aichi Prefectural Ceramic Museum, and Tokoname Ceramic Promenade.
