Making Steadfast Efforts to be a Vibrant and Well-loved Port
Situated at the innermost part of Ise Bay, which is located at the center
of the Japanese Archipelago on the east coast facing the Pacific Ocean,
the Port of Nagoya has steadily grown since it opened for international
trade on November 10, 1907.
The Port is an integrated international port, handling all types of cargo (general, container, bulk etc.) We are the largest port in Japan in terms of total cargo throughput, which reached 208 million tons in 2013.
We are proud that our port tops all others in Japan in terms of trade value (total export/import value) in Japan, which amounted to 16.3 trillion yen in 2013. This is approximately 11% of the nation's total trade value of about 151 trillion yen.
The Port's hinterland is home to Japan's automobile industry. We are the No. 1 automobile exporting port in Japan, shipping approximately 1.5 million completed automobiles.
The Port of Nagoya plays a major role as a point of entry to Japan, through its connections with approximately 160 countries around the world.
