A spot to learn about seas and ports

Featuring big facilities such as the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium, the Nagoyako Port Building, the JETTY mall with amusement and gourmet options and much more, the Nagoya Port Garden Pier (Nagoyako Garden Futo) is a leisure spot filled with lots of fun and excitement.

Knowing about the socially influential Port of Nagoya, at the Nagoya Maritime Museum

The theme of this facility is "The Largest International Trading Port of Japan, Port of Nagoya". Japan, as an island country, relies heavily in the import of living goods such as food and energy, which are shipped from overseas by cargo ships. The Port of Nagoya boasts Best-of-Class in several categories, such as Overall Volume of Handled Cargo, being just a gigantic station. At this museum visitors are able to study the various parts of the vast port facilities by means of the dioramas, displays, panoramic models, multimedia equipment, and etc.
Adults and kids alike will be thrilled at the Gantry Crane Cargo Unloading Simulator, at the Ship Cruise Experience Simulator and other fun exhibits.

How was life aboard the Fuji? Get aboard and see for yourself!

Moored permanently at the Port of Nagoya Pier is the open-air exhibit Antarctic Museum and Former Research Ship Fuji. For 18 years since 1965, the icebreaking capabilities of this ship - an indispensable feature for polar exploring vessels - allowed it to perform its research tasks until its permanent retirement. Converted as museum, it lives now to tell the story of those explorers and the routine aboard.
