Chubu means "middle region", accurately reflecting its position straddling the two Japanese poles of Kansai and Kanto. Often ignored by tourists, with de facto capital Nagoya being a byword for boredom, Chubu's best attractions are in the mountains, particularly the (only slightly hyperbolic) Japan Alps.

Talk

There are many people who speak in dialect in this area. In ShironeShirone in Niigata prefecture, people speak in a dialect. For example, they use the word "Ra, Ri, Ru, Re and Ro " at the ending. So they speak like this, "?raro!".

Get around

Chubu

See

  • In the Oku-Hida region around Takayama, check out the traditional gassh?-zukuri houses, with a roof shaped like hands in prayer to protect against snow from accumulating.
  • There are many famous temples in Nagano, notably Zenk?ji, considered an official national treasure.
  • In Nagoya, there is Nagoya castle, although it's just a modern concrete reconstruction.
  • Mount Fuji's view is great.
Chubu

Do

  • Winter sports. In the winter, cold, dry air from the Asian continent meets moist Pacific air, the result is a large amount of snow that falls in the Koshin'etsu district, also known as Snow Country (?? Yukiguni), since it receives some of the heaviest snowfall in Japan. This makes Chubu Japan's undisputed winter sports capital with attractions like Nagano, site of the 1998 Winter Olympics, and Yuzawa, easily reached from Tokyo.
  • Hiking. The Japan Alps have some great hiking. Mount Fuji in Shizuoka is a symbol of Japan and a popular tourist attraction, both for viewing and climbing.
Chubu

Eat

  • Hotaru ika (lit. "firefly squid") in Toyama
  • Tempura shrimp in Nagoya
Chubu

Drink

Shizuoka is famous for green tea and Aichi specializes in, oddly enough, oranges.
