Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Aichi as a reference for planning your trip.
If you want to go to Toyohashi from Tokyo, you can come to Toyohashi by Shinkansen.
It is therefore convenient to use the Shinkansen.
In Aichi Prefecture, there is the Central Japan International Airport (Centrair), which has many international flights. For domestic flights, there are flights from Kyushu (including Okinawa), Shikoku, and Sapporo, Hakodate, Sendai, and Akita in the north.
However, it takes about an hour and a half by train from Centrair to Toyohashi, which is a bit far.
While there are a few hotels in Toyohashi, it is not an area with that many accommodations.
Toyohashi and Nagoya are less than an hour apart by conventional train, so using Nagoya as a base will give you a wider choice of hotels.
There are no nationally famous tourist attractions in Toyohashi.
The Yoshida Castle in Toyohashi Park in the city is the main attraction, and the Toyohashi Art Museum is located in the same park.
It takes about 20 minutes to walk from Toyohashi Station to Toyohashi Park, but there are streetcars running in Toyohashi City, so you may want to take the streetcar if you dare.
In Aichi Prefecture, there are many specialties such as nikomi udon, miso cutlet, and hitsu-mabushi.
In Toyohashi, curry udon has become a specialty in recent years.
The following is a list of restaurants in the Toyohashi and Shinshiro areas.
