Bustling Complex good for Shopping and Food right above Nagoya Station!

JR Central Towers are the tower buildings right above the Nagoya station, with department stores, hotels and restaurants in it. It’s the most vibrant spot around this central station.

My recommendation is to stroll around the JR Nagoya Takashimaya department store. It has a wide range of goods from luxury brand fashion, Japanese crafts, kitchen items, health care products to stationery. Just going to a few floors especially the basement floors might be enough to satisfy you. On the basement floors, there are fresh fish stores, high grade butchers, amazingly displayed vegetables and fruits, special ingredients and some famous patisseries. You may take time choosing a lunch box at deli stores from all over Japan and of course with many specialties from Nagoya. Japanese sake at the sake store here will be the best for souvenir. They sell varieties of locally brewed sake that you can rarely see in other cities.

On the 12th and 13th floors 40 casual restaurants are there. World cuisines, sushi, tempura, udon, tonkatsu, eel dishes, organic food... It’s convenient if you just want to promptly find a modest restaurant and have a meal. But be careful, lunch time is very crowded on weekdays and even more on weekends.

Taking the elevator “Sky Shuttle” up to the 15th floor, there is a viewing deck called Sky Street but unfortunately, you can’t enjoy such a good view because other skyscrapers will block your view.

There are also some nice and relaxing restaurants inside the Nagoya Marriott Associa Hotel, one of the best hotels in Nagoya, too.

*At JR Nagoya Takashimaya: There are some staff who can speak English or Chinese in most floors. There are also two tax refund counters on the 3rd and 11th floors. English, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Korean and Thai floor guide brochures are available.
