In this Hackerspace Nagoya(),you can use 3D Printer, Laser Cutter, 3D pen, and (website hidden) Glass. You can make friends with sharing people if they are here. (Please let me know your interest beforehand. Maybe I can invite someone having the same interest.
There are two rooms 6F and 7F. You are staying at 7F(rooftop garden) which has only sofa and blanket for one person. On 6F, which is called sharebase.InC, Hackers Makers, and many kinds of people are sharing this place and facilities. People have their own job and get together at night and (website hidden), 3D Printing, Laser Cutting, Linux, Opensource Hardware, LED, Hydroponics, Cooking, and so on.
7F Floor(rooftop garden) is the place you are staying. On the way to the stairs, you can find the bathroom and shower room. You can use there anytime (it's old and sometimes broken.. if so, you may go to the bathroom of the convenience store and spa of the hotel nearby)
6F is available only when sharing members are there(likely at night). You can talk to them(just tell them you are Yasu's friend). There is a piano and guitar. You can read book here. Kitchen is available so tell me if you want to cook.
Interaction with Guests
I'm not living here, but I likely stay and talk with people here until around midnight. There are many people who can talk English (at least than other place). If you are hungry we sometimes go out and eat local foods together. Every 4th weekend, there is a night market, so if the timing is good, we can hang out together.
It is located in the middle of the city. Good access to everywhere. From the airport, just take one train(30min.) to Nagoya sta. 15min. walk is kind of tough, though.
Another thing I like here is you can see the historical river and bridge from the top of the building. Or, you can walk along.
Also, Osu (take train just one station) is the origin of Anime culture and Naogya Fashion. And if you like electric parts, this is the best place to find what you want.
40min. from the airport by train. Nagoya sta. is the main hub of this city, and you can drop there. 15 min. walk to our building. Another near station is Fushimi(subway).
Other Things to Note
The door of the building is locked after 2am. If you are going out, please memorize the number of the key. It is 2468.
There is a shower room and bath room on the way to the penthouse garden. It is locked and you can open with a card key which is in the bag on the desk of your room. Please take off your shoes if you go in the bath room.
I had a great time staying at hackerspace. The room was really comfortable and it's pretty central (many places could be accessed by foot/trains). Many bars and food places around too, and there is a minimart just 2 min walk away.
Yasuhiro-san was really welcoming and speaks great english! I definitely recommend this place.
Yes Yasuhiro was a great host. He introduced me to key people to accomplish my objectives and was very supportive. I would recommend friends to stay here.
Staying at Yasuhiro's share base in Nagoya was awesome!
The place is 10 mins walk from Nagoya Station in a nice area full of izakayas and bars. The room is on a rooftop where you can enjoy a nice view of the city and is equipped with all the amenities. I arrive in the late morning and I spent the entire day with Yasuhiro, who took around the city (what's best to visit a place with a local person?) and then we went to Nabana No Sato lights festival (one of the best lights festival in Japan). Yasuhiro is a friendly person and has a lot of interests. We had such a great time sharing opinions, experiences, cultures and food. It was like we have known each other for a long time.
I couldn't have had a better experience!
I had a really good time at Hackerspace! I met a lot of friendly people who were so kind to bring me around Nagoya, and the room was really nice too! Thanks very much, Yasu-San :) will definitely come back to Nagoya someday!
I'm the owner of Hackerspace Nagoya. I had been in Oklahoma for four years as a student, so I can communicate with English. I have been in Nagoya in other time of life, so I can tell you places only Nagoya people know. In the same building, there is a coworking space, and there many kinds of people, who are interested in Cooking, 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, Virtual Reality, Hydroponics, Movies, Readings, Games and so on. I can introduce somebody who has the same interest if you need.
