    Thanks to a business partner here in Nagoya, I found out about the InterNations community and connected with fellow expats from Spain.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Nagoya

Hello to all Americans in Nagoya! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Nagoya? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Nagoya which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Nagoya does not deserve its reputation as one of Japan’s most boring cities. The capital of the Aichi Prefecture is a port city known for its manufacturing industry, various museums and temples, easy-going population, and much more! With the local buses and an excellent subway system, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the neighborhoods of Chikusa Ward, for example, which are about 30 minutes away from Nagoya’s center.

Although Nagoya has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Nagoya, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
