I made a quick stop in Nagoya on my way to Okayama and the Inland Sea, which was the focus of the trip. It's only 2 hours 21 minutes to Nagoya by shinkansen.
I found a nice little brewery with a restaurant tap room, T Market Brewing Restaurant.
Here's the refreshing Tasogare Summer Ale.
Nagoya is known for their chicken wings, and Y Brewing had their own delicious original recipe.
