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. Today, Nagoya grabs attention and keeps on developing as a Japanese international city.
