The Chukyo Industrial Area that covers Aichi, Gifu and Mie Prefectures is the heart of the Japanese manufacturing industry. Japan's automobile, railway, aerospace and ceramic industries evolved here. Our reporter visits corporate museums in Aichi, takes a night cruise through the complexes of Yokkaichi, Mie, and tours the premier ceramic tile city of Tajimi, Gifu. Ideal for children and adults, alike. Also, we introduce 3 relatively easy hiking routes in the Northern Alps.
