    The Centrair Sky Deck is worth checking out especially if you have time between flights. It's a nice place to catch a break, get fresh air, and watch the aircraft. It's actually a big observation deck worth checking out.

    Tokoname City Pottery Footpath offers two self-guided walks that are very well posted. We took the shorter walk which took just over an hour at a leisurely pace. Sections of the walk have walls consisting of Meiji era clay pipes. The brick chimneys and old klins line the paths and there were a lot of English explanations along the way to keep things interesting. There are plenty of workshops that sell the pottery along the way although most are very expensive.

    Aeon Mall Tokoname has plenty of good dining and shopping options like most Aeon malls. We stopped at its branch of Hamazushi for some inexpensive conveyor belt sushi and picked up some random souvenirs at the huge supermarket. The huge manekineko at the entrance makes for a good photo spot. Free shuttle bus from the airport is provided during the day time.

    Lots of variety of food choose. Ranges from steak, fish and chips, noodle, ice cream, burgers, Korean.... and good prices. Opens from 10.00am and close early in the night. Great atmosphere!

    Just 3-minute walk from the JR station for reaching the entrance of the pottery road.
    Full of cute and lovely potteries could be seen over the walk and there were a few of small home-based factories as well. Unluckily, some of them were off on the day of visit.

    Warm reminder that there was a small snack shop while the walk ran by the elderly couple, pls buy the delicious and chewy snack from them!!!!

    Located across from the Chubu International Airport, you can take full advantage of the airport infrastructure.

    Lots of hotels with a walkable distance away. Access by train or by car. Huge pay parking with a reasonable parking fee of ¥800 per day.

    The actual venue has food service but the airport across the way has a variety of full-service restaurants.

    If you use the train to get there, book a seat on the reserved “Mu-Sky” trains. These are like the JR Narita Express with comfortable seats and luggage racks. The other “express” trains are really locals with cars that are like subway cars and they make a lot of stops along the way. During busy times, you’re likely to have to stand for 40 minutes. I didn’t see a ticket office in Nagoya but there are English-speaking staff who will assist you to make a booking on the ticket machine. Or if you play around with the machine you can figure out how to work it. An IC transit card will be accepted for payment, or cash but not credit cards. A private company operates these trains so a JR Pass will not be accepted.

    The Access Plaza has ATMs and in the smoking room a currency change machine.

    While on the way to the pottery path, I walked by the Manekineko Street. I enjoyed each and every statue and liked reading the small descriptions under each statue. Some were cuter then others. If you are going to do the pottery path and see the giant neko, chances are you will walk this street.

    It was really neat to see this. Not really something to spend more than a few minutes at however.

    Some of the best priced and best quality vendors are on this area for pottery

    I saw this manekineko or good luck cat months ago while taking a train ride to the airport. I marked it on my map to visit next time I visited the area and had the chance to recently visit. I took the pottery path and stopped at this large statue briefly. You can see it from afar, below on the street, or walk up the hill during the pottery path and see this from the bridge. I found it to be a fun site and pretty cute. You don't need a lot of time here, but it's worth a quick photo.
