I spent two nights last week in Nagoya with a friend and it's very unique from other Japanese cities. Nagoya isn't quite as haphazardly planned, and it is VERY clean compared to Tokyo and Osaka. In fact, it's as clean as Kobe and Yokohama if not cleaner, and there's a strong upper middle class there. Nagoya also has very wide roads compared to other Japanese cities and a high rate of automobile usage, almost as high as some US cities believe it or not. There were also quite a lot of foreigners in Nagoya percentage-wise compared to Tokyo and Osaka, probably because of the expo, but who knows. I love Nagoya! I think it could replace Osaka as Japan's second city in the future... and Aichi is the second largest area of flat land in Japan, bigger than Kansai, which is about 95% fully developed. Aichi I think is only 30% developed if even that, and still manages close to 11 million people.

Fantastic pics of Nagoya--but Im pretty disappointed that the view of the JR Towers from Sakae will be blocked. Toyota should have built the tower one block south, to create a wall.

Great job on the EXPO, Nagoya!

IS AICHI NOW ON FOREIGNERS' MAP?
Chubu economy's future seen bright with boost from expo

By JUSTINE BORNSTEIN
Regional correspondent

NAGOYA -- As Nagoya's big coming-out party winds down, thoughts turn inevitably to what's next. The issue of how the prefecture can capitalize on the Aichi Expo is on everyone's mind.
Unlike the expo held in Tsukuba, Ibaraki prefecture, in 1985 that was intended to kick-start the city's flagging growth, Nagoya was already in great shape.

Known for its "monzukuri bunka," or "culture of making things," Aichi Prefecture has profited enormously from its niche in high-end manufacturing, particularly in the automotive and aerospace sectors, and the strong research and development and wide-ranging supporting industries that are integral to such success.

The economy has performed well for years. The industrial production index of the region is 120, having risen 13 percent since 2000, compared to the national average of 101. Consumer spending in Aichi was up more than 7 percent in July, well above the national average of 1.2 percent, and the job to applicant ratio is 1.4 to 1.7 in Aichi alone, higher than the 0.97 national figure.

The goal of the expo was in part to help recast in a more favorable light the prefecture's image in the minds of Japanese and to put Aichi on the map in the eyes of the foreign business community.

The awareness of what this region has to offer to business decision-makers has definitely improved. Stephen Anderson, commercial officer at the U.S. Consulate in Nagoya, said: "(Nagoya) has now established itself as a stop in international, global business. Because business leaders came here, people are more conscious of it."

Thanks also to the array of infrastructure built for the expo, the prefecture has established itself as a vital transit and cargo hub.

The new Centrair airport is expected to generate economic effects worth about 130 billion yen between fiscal 2006 and 2010, according to the Chubu Economic Federation (Chukeiren).

"The infrastructure laid down will be a big change," Expo Association Secretary General Toshio Nakamura said, "especially the added convenience (of the airport). Currently, 60 percent of cargo goes through Narita and Kansai, but Nagoya's share will increase as it attracts more cargo business."

The inevitable downturn that comes after such a big event is looking minimal as well, for two reasons. One is the better than anticipated attendance figures, which means any debts accrued to stage the expo will be offset by increased revenues.

Anderson noted that "the bounce that they are going to get will help them avoid the debt period. Practically, there will be profits." The prefectural government has forecast that the aftereffects of the expo and the new airport should generate 2.2 trillion yen in revenue from 2005 to 2010.

The second big cause is the relocation from Tokyo of Toyota's head offices, starting in 2007. Figures bandied about range from 2,000 to 7,000 people, depending on the source, but the move will likely have a synergistic effect on the economy.

"There will be a multiplier effect when Toyota moves its headquarters to Nagoya," Nakamura said. "Other companies will also come. For example, Mori Seiki (a machine tools maker) will relocate its head office from Fukui to Nagoya."

Already, a mini-construction boom is happening near Nagoya Station, as a number of high-rise buildings are being erected.

Most prominent is Midland Square, future home of Toyota's headquarters and known informally to Nagoya residents as "the Toyota Building," which is slated to be even taller than Nagoya's twin tower landmark, the 51-story JR Central Towers.

Nearby will be the Lucent Building and the Mitsui Building, due to come on stream in 2008. Another site near the station, currently home to the expo satellite De La Fantasia venue, will become Eco City Sasashima, an office and entertainment complex.

As the city's entertainment and business centers shift westward toward the main train station, Nagoya is experiencing its own little property bubble; NHK recently reported that rents in the Nagoya Station area, including the landmark but somewhat dilapidated Dai Nagoya Building, are up more than 30 percent over a one-year period.

In the longer term, the completion of the Second Tomei Expressway, and the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway will see an integration of regional economies, from the western Kanto through the Hokuriku regions, with Nagoya as the focal point. "There will be improved distribution and logistic links," Nakamura said. "Just one more tunnel needs to be completed on the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway and then the Hokuriku region will be seen, instead of as part of Kansai, as a part of the Tokai economic area."

While it may be the center of the regional economy, can Nagoya reposition itself as Japan's de facto second city? Anderson thinks not, suggesting that it will function as a specialized niche in a variety of high-tech industries: autos, aerospace, information technology and chemicals.

"(The economy) won't bring the Ark Hills or Roppongi Hills financial people down here, but it will bring the engineers, the designers and the project managers," he said.

In a sense, the expo can be seen as a catalyst for all this change.

"The whole expo event will be the start of things," Nakamura said. "The experience and knowhow that comes from having staged such an event, plus the change in people's perspective, will bear fruit in many areas. It's hard to say what would have happened in 10 to 20 years without this event."

Ahh Nagoya 懐かしい  It's great to see these tall buildings going up around Nagoya station. That area is really coming alive now. I'm looking forward to seeing the Mitsui building take shape! I heard that the "landmark but somewhat dilapidated Dai Nagoya Building" will be making way for another tall one in the future. Does anyone else know anything about this?
