Our office will run press tours with the participation of overseas media, before the Ise-Shima Summit. Meticulous preparations have also been made to welcome overseas visitors, with the planned decoration of the Chubu Centrair International Airport (a.k.a Centrair), a gateway to the world, and the Nagoya Station, where the JR Shinkansen connects the capital, Tokyo, to Aichi at around 280 km/h.
Aichi prefecture is located in the center of Japan, and it has long been a region where the industrial technologies of the country have gathered. These include the top technologies of TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION, which in 2015 held the world’s biggest annual share of the market in automobiles, and Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation, which successfully completed its first flight of the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) in November last year, the first made in Japan domestically produced passenger jet. Outstanding traditional skills passed down through the generations go into the making of ceramics such as Seto pottery and Tokoname pottery. Traditions, such as the dashi float ceremony, inscribed on the representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO, incorporate the technologies of karakuri mechanical dolls, the root of mechanical industry. Aichi Prefecture is at the “Heart of Japan,” where these industrial technologies, the pride of Japan, have all gathered. We invite people to visit the “Heart of Japan, AICHI-NAGOYA,” which has become the focal point of the world with the holding of the Ise-Shima Summit.
A Message to People All over the World from Hideaki Ohmura, the Governor of Aichi Prefecture
Dear Ise-Shima Summit participants, welcome to Aichi Prefecture!
As the gateway to the Summit, Aichi welcomes all of you with the distinctively Japanese omotenashi hospitality. Aichi is Japan’s manufacturing hub, renowned for its world-class, cutting-edge technologies in the automotive and aerospace industries. It is also a land of history and tradition, being home to the three prominent samurai warlords who paved the way for the unification of Japan and a great number of historical heritage sites.
Located in the center of Japan, Aichi has excellent access to anywhere inside and outside of Japan.
It is my sincere wish that you experience Aichi’s multi-faceted appeal on the occasion of this Summit.
