By Air

Japan's third major international gateway after Narita and Kansai, Centrair prides itself on offering seamless interchange between international and domestic flights. Flights leave from both Haneda and Narita and take just 70 minutes runway to runway. Chubu Centrair International Airport is located just 35km, or 28 minutes by train south of Nagoya City.

By Train

Tokyo and Nagoya are connected with each other by the JR Tokaido Shinkansen. Hikari trains about 110 minutes and Kodama trains about three hours.

In Osaka, begin your journey at Shin-Osaka Station. Take the JR Tokaido Shinkansen Kodama or Hikari trains eastbound (towards Tokyo) to Nagoya Station. The trip will last between 55 and 70 minutes.

By Car

If driving from Tokyo to Nagoya, expect to pay around 8,000 yen in highway tolls (source: NEXCO).  Much of the journey will be spent on the Tomei Expressway which plugs drivers right into Nagoya.  The drive takes around four hours. 

The roughly 180 kilometers from Osaka to Nagoya can be done by car in about 2 hours and 15 minutes if there is no traffic. It is however probably not the cheapest option with prices for tolls, car rental, and gasoline being relatively high in Japan.

By Bus

Multiple companies, including Willer Express, operate daytime and overnight buses between Tokyo and Nagoya. The one way trip takes about 5-6 hours.

Meitetsu Bus operates buses between the airport and several locations around Nagoya.
