Living in Toyohashi

The Japanese city of Toyohashi provides expatriates with a diverse range of experiences, and has many of the typical cultural features of this fascinating country. Toyohashi is in the Aichi Prefecture and although the city itself was only founded in 1906, the area has been inhabited for thousands of years. To the south of the city, expats living in Toyohashi will find Enshu Bay and the Pacific Ocean, whose warm currents means the city has a temperate climate. The area is also known as a nesting place for sea turtles and Toyohashi boasts one of the best beaches for surfing in the prefecture and in the region as a whole. But of course, life as an expatriate in Toyohashi is not going to be all about the beach and the Japanese culture. For that reason, expats planning on living in Toyohashi might want to join InterNations, the biggest global online expat community. On our platform, you can for example see what other expats have to say about living and working in Japan and what any useful tips they can pass on.

Moving to Toyohashi

Expats moving to Toyohashi can expect to find a modern city with great facilities and plenty to see and do. Once settled in, the city has a rich cultural life to enjoy and there are numerous festivals throughout the year such as the main Toyohashi Festival, the Iris Flower Festival, the Demon Festival and a traditional marionette festival, Akumi joruri, to name but a few. It should be noted that some of the festivals can get pretty loud as handcrafted fireworks are let off, including the tezutsu hanabi in bamboo-tubes. The city is also well known for food, specializing in chikuwa, a sausage roll made with fish, beach-fermented soybeans and quail eggs, for which Toyohashi is famous and which every expat moving to Toyohashi should have tried at least once. And of course no expatriate who has relocated to Toyohashi should miss out on its landmarks such as the Yoshida Castle, the Mikawa Seaside Forest as well as the Natural History Museum and Zoological Park.

Working in Toyohashi

Toyohashi’s Mikawa Port is an important import and export hub, the biggest in the country for automobiles, handling around 50% of all car imports. Toyota, Suzuki, Mitsubishi as well as Ford, Audi, Daimler-Chrysler and Volkswagen are all exported or imported from here. Expats new to working in Toyohashi will soon discover Cocola Front, a relatively new center with shopping malls, restaurants and office space. For those wanting some exercise after a hard day’s work, Toyohashi has plenty of good places to jog. Takashi Ryokuchi Park is a popular venue and is flat with plenty of cool shade provided by the abundance of pine trees. For more challenging terrain, runners can head for the trails in Iwaya Ryokuchi Park. Ice-skating is popular in Toyohashi and one of the best rinks is at Aquaarena, used from November to May, which in summer is converted into a swimming pool.
