Pack your bags because we're taking you to Nagoya! Nagoya is the fourth-most-populous city in Japan and definitely one of the most underrated. Many tourists know Nagoya for its historic Nagoya Castle built in the early 1600s, but the well-traveled foodies come to Nagoya for its mouthwatering Nagoya Meshi (Nagoya Eats).
Nagoya's cultural and historical differences with other regions of Japan led to the development of many dishes unique to Nagoya. For example, you might recognize the famous Ogura Toast on the cover above (an inspiration for one of this month's snacks!), or maybe you've heard of Kishimen, a local udon dish. Whether you be a seasoned Nagoya traveler or totally new to this hidden gem of a city, we are thrilled to take you on a gourmet journey to Nagoya through this month’s curation of Nagoya snacks and teas!
