Aichi Prefecture is where you can find Oasis21 - a place becoming increasingly popular for its wonderful photo opportunities, and the historical Nagoya Castle - built for Ieyasu Tokugawa and the Edo Shogunate to mark the unification of Japan after the feudal era. The world famous car manufacturer Toyota is also based here. A peculiar dining culture is ingrained among the people in Aichi Prefecture. You can enjoy Miso-katsu, a pork cutlet with thick Hatcho Miso sauce, a red miso produced in Aichi; Miso-nikomi udon, a rustic dish of thick wheat udon noodles simmered in a savory miso; Hitsumabushi, a dish where the eel is served in 3 ways; or Ogura Toast, a Nagoya speciality where red bean paste, butter, and fresh whipped cream is served on toast. Aichi is a region full of great cuisine.
