The city is famous for its indigo-coloured arimatsu tie-dyes; these are produced traditionally and made into clothing and accessories sold at Nagoya’s high-end malls. Other popular souvenirs include items featuring the kinshachi golden dolphins which adorn Nagoya Castle and uiro, a Nagoyan steamed cake.
