Aichi Prefecture is located in the center of Japan and is known as the manufacturing kingdom, including the automobile industry centered on Toyota Motor Corporation. Despite the big city of Nagoya, there are places where you can see the sea such as Chita and Atsumi Peninsula; and, there is also Okumikawa centered on the mountains. Therefore, so we are proud of being the most comfortable to live in.

Climate (temperature / precipitation)

The climate is mild throughout the year, with more rainfall in the summer and less in the winter. The Atsumi Peninsula and the southern part of the Chita Peninsula are warm due to the influence of the Kuroshio Current, but the mountainous areas in the northeast are slightly cooler, and there is a considerable temperature difference.

Obara Freai Park & Shiki-Zakura (four-season-cherry)

pic_dummy.pngThe highlight here is the rare "Four Seasons Cherry Blossoms" that bloom twice a year in spring and autumn. It is in full bloom around November every year. The scenery where you can see - the pink of the four seasons cherry blossoms, the bright red autumn leaves, and the green of the surrounding trees - at once, is a miracle collaboration.
