Nagoya, here I come!

Just got a message from YFU on my answering machine(because my family can't answer the phone to save our lives)

I am going to......
Tochi, Minato, Nagoya, Japan! I'll be living with a family that has two daughters that are out of the house and I'll be going to school at Atsuta Senior High School. After much research, I've decided that is the name of the high school. But I'm not positive.

Nagoya is home to over 2 million people and is the capital of Aichi prefecture. It's the center of the Chuukyou Metropolitan area which has a population of almost 9 million people (that's huge!). The average temperature in the summer doesn't even get above 90 (bring it on) and yes...it appears to be on the coast! Hopefully I'll wake up to this castle every day:
