Walking routes to rediscover manufacturing culture

Horikawa Route(約13km)

This Route starts in Miyanowatashi Park, from which, during pre-modern times, travelers along the Tokaido Highway took ferries.
Tourists on this Route walk along the Horikawa Canal, constructed to transport building materials for Nagoya Castle, built 400 years ago. From the Edo Period (1603 – 1868) to the Showa Period (1926 – 1989), the Canal served as a trunk channel for transporting timbers and other products. Along the Canal there are various industrial heritage sites, which many pedestrians pass by without noticing, but which are indeed noteworthy.

* The time indicated between arrows shows average time on foot.
