Night view of Yokkaichi Plant
The large-scale petrochemical complex in the port area, which symbolizes the industrial city of Yokkaichi, has been in operation since the 1960s and has developed as the ground for Japan's rapid economic growth. At night, the area where the factories of numerous companies stand in a forest is enveloped in a fantastic glow that is a far cry from the majesty of the daytime, making it a sacred place for "night views of factories" and a popular photo spot.
Nagashima is located in the suburbs of Nagoya, and is home to many leisure facilities such as amusement parks and hot springs.
