Explore Japan: Water and Sewerage of Nagoya (Part I)

Walk & Talk: Water History Museum in the Sakura (cherry blossoms) Season

Let us walk to the Historical Museum of Waterworks and Sewerage and learn about the water and sewerage system of Nagoya. We will have a simple lunch together.

In cities where many people live, providing clean drinking water and developing sewage systems support healthy living. Nagoya has provided drinking water to the community since the 17th century, and the sewage system has been in place since the 19th century.
During the Walk & Talk, we will walk to the Water History Museum in the morning while viewing cherry blossoms in bloom to deepen our understanding of Nagoya’s water supply and sewage systems. We will visit the water tower surrounded by cherry blossoms and have lunch together.

We will provide a simple lunch (Japanese rice balls and beverages). If you have dietary restrictions, please bring lunch.

Date & Time: March 25 (Saturday), 2023. 9:30 a.m. ~ 1:30 p.m.
