Japanese calligraphy and other cultural experiences in Ichinomiya City
Ichinomiya City is about 11 minutes train ride from Nagoya Station, or 20-minute drive from central Nagoya. "Ichinomiya" literally means "the first shrine in the region", and Ichinomiya area had been a local center of commerce and agriculture even before 10th century. This city is far more older than Nagoya, which had developed after 17th century.
