We purposely chose to stay in Sakae because of the neighborhood. It’s a lively place - even if you aren’t staying there, but are looking for a place to eat - you should be able to find something to your liking. Plenty of restaurants to choose from to fit any budget. Lots of cuisines: great wings (Yamachan) and many choices... More

The Sakae station is conveniently located at the centre of a range of shops including Tokyu hands, Mitsukoshi, Komehyo, Matsusakaya, Don Quijote etc. On top of these, the underground shopping arcade is also full of surprises. This will be a great place for a cold or rainy day.

Everything is here. Stores everywhere, from single stand alone shops to buildings housing various stores to big department stores and underground malls. Food from all places of the world.

The area is filled with restaurants and hotels. Nice area to hang around and find food, but no Japanese taste in this area. It feels more like in Singapore, if you have been there. The architecture in this area is also more modern type. Overall, nice place to find food and shopping.

Yes, it's the biggest street in Nagoya, but not expect many shops and discount if you come from Tokyo or Osaka. Btw, the adidas shop here is lots of product and collection are sold out in other cities. Take a look, sportive do not miss!

We went for lunch at a famous unagi restaurant here. The food was really good. We had the experience of tatami sitting n the restaurant was full.

I didn't particularly enjoy going to sakae more than once, but that's where several good and popular restaurants are located at. The streets of sakae are very crowded with a diverse range of people. In my opinion, walking in sakae felt like i wasn't in Japan anymore but just another shopping district. Other busy districts like Shinjuku or Shibuya are... More

Stayed in Sakae for four nights (probably one too many) and used it as a base for day trips. Two local lines were easy to use. Plenty of reasonable priced restaurants about and little tea/coffee shops. Oasis 21 was a good spot and has a very helpful tourist information office, Plus a subway line. We stayed at Hotel Mystays which... More
