When you hear the name “Toyota,” the first thing that comes to mind is the eponymous Japanese car brand. Toyota — which was originally known as Koromo until the city changed its name to reflect the importance of Toyota Motor Corp. — has long been a major industrial center, first of silk and now of cars. But Toyota, near Nagoya, is more than just a manufacturing hub: It is home to mountains and valleys of great scenic beauty, as well as historical sites that date back to the Edo Period (1603-1868) and the ruling Tokugawa shogunate. Read our weekend itinerary to see some of the top spots in Nagoya and Toyota. (Claire Williamson @accidentaltokyoite photos)
