Situated at the innermost edge 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, other). We are the largest port in Japan in terms of total cargo throughput, which reached 177.79 million tons in 2021.

We are proud that our port tops all others in Japan in terms of trade surplus value, which amounted to 7.2 trillion yen in 2021.

The Port's hinterland is home to Japan's automobile industry. We are the No. 1 automobile exporting port in Japan, shipping approximately 1.17 million completed automobiles annually.

The Port of Nagoya plays a major role as a point of entry to Japan, through its connections with approximately 170 countries around the world.
