-- HOST CITY: NAGOYA, JAPAN  --
---------------------------------------------------------------------

   Nagoya is located at the center of Honshu (the main island of
   Japan) with a population of 2.24 million. Thanks to the rich water
   resources of the Kisogawa, Nagaragawa and Ibigawa Rivers, the
   fertile land which enjoy the blessings of the rivers, and other
   advantages including good transportation links, its people have
   lived affluent lives since early days.

   Nagoya has a long history and is the birthplace of three notable
   feudal lords, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu.
   Also in Nagoya, traditional industries like ceramics and textiles,
   and today's key industries like automobiles, aviation and machine
   tools have developed, and Nagoya has an important role in Japan's
   industrial society.

   Furthermore, the Central Japan International Airport (Centrair)
   opened in February 2005, and in March 2005, Expo 2005 Aichi Japan
   started. Centrair has flight connections with Frankfurt, Helsinki,
   Detroit, Tokyo Narita, etc. Today, Nagoya grabs attention and
   keeps on developing as a Japanese international city.
