Air travel

Nagoya is served by Chubu Centrair International Airport with daily international flights to multiple destinations in Europe, North America, and Asia.
If you arrive in any other airport (e.g. Narita, Haneda, Kansai, etc.), go to the nearest shinkansen station. Nagoya can be reached quickly and comfortably by bullet train (shinkansen) from Tokyo, Osaka, and all other major cities and airports in Japan – see below.
