In 1907, Nagoya Port was opened and a pier(Central Pier) was built.After that, the east and west piers were constructed, and in the early Showa period(1926-1989), these three piers were upgraded.The current "Garden Pier" is the area that was the main pier of Nagoya Port until the Showa period 30's (1955-1964).When Nagoya citizens say "Nagoya Port", they often think of "Garden Pier".However, in the Showa period 40's (1965-1974), the Inaei and Kinjo piers were constructed, and the focus of logistics shifted to the offshore piers.
