The Mikokoro Center is less than 500 m walking from the Hisayaodori subway station on the Sakura-dori line (red) (third stop from Nagoya JR station) and the circular Meijo line (purple), shown below:

Take Exit 2 of the Hisayaodori subway station of the Sakura-dori line. (Do not confuse with exits 2A and 2B, also shown on the map.) You will see an HH shop on your right and Starbucks across the street. Continue walking along Otsu Dori (north). Cross two small streets (Suginomachi Dori and Uonotana Dori; you will see Lawson 100 and Family Mart stores along the way). You will see the Mikokoro Center on your right before you reach the end of the next block. The Chapel is on the 3rd floor.
