Nagakute is an area in the eastern part of Nagoya city (Meito ward) in Aichi prefecture, Japan. Nagakute is the town where the “Komaki-Nagakute Battle” took place in 1584 (Tensho 12) between Hideyoshi Hashiba and Ieyasu Tokugawa. There remain many historical sites and both tangible and intangible cultural assets relating to the battle. This town of about 50,000 population on the east side of Nagoya is a very nice place to live, with its comfortable residential environment.
