    »Takahama Tile Art Museum

    This unusual museum is dedicated to the humble roofing tile, because of the industrial history of the city as a roofing tile producer. Although the subject may be unassuming, one of the more interesting aspects is the onigawara (ornamental tile pieces found on ridge ends and eaves of roofs) often shaped like the faces of ogres to serve as charms to ward off evil spirits and to protect the building. In addition to examples of tiles going back more than a millennium, there are also photographic exhibits of architecture from around the world that utilize the roofing tile.

    »Port of Nagoya Aquarium

    One of the newest and largest aquariums in Japan, this one divides its aquatic life into five different ecosystems representative of the Pacific Ocean. Also involved in scientific research, including the breeding of sea turtles and other aquatic life, the aquarium's natural exhibits are heavily supported with multimedia displays. The underwater tunnel and the penguin exhibit are especially popular. The aquarium is located at the port's Garden Pier along with many other attractions. Call to know the open hours.

    »Atsuta Jingu

    If you have already seen the Imperial Palace in Tokyo and the Ise Shrines in Mie, a visit to Atsuta Jinja will complete your tour of the three most sacred sites in Japan. An ancient, Japanese prince's sword (kusanagi) is housed here. The shrine itself is modest, but the approach lined with cypress trees merits a visit in itself. Other national treasures are on display at an on-site museum.
