Expo 2005 is the World's Fair held in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, east of the city of Nagoya. The Expo is set to run for 185 days between March 25 and September 25, 2005. Aichi 2005 is Japan's second Universal Exposition, the first being Osaka's Expo '70 (1970), but Japan's fifth if the Special Expositions of Okinawa's Expo '75 (1975), Tsukuba's Expo '85 and Osaka's Expo '90 are also counted.

Theme

The theme of the Expo is "Nature's Wisdom", with national and corporate pavilions expressing themes of ecological co-existence, renewable technology, and the wonders of nature. In Japanese, this is rendered as Ai-chikyūpaku (愛・地球博), which means (roughly) "Love the Earth Expo". According to the official website:

We must come together and share our experience and wisdom, in order to create a new direction for humanity which is both sustainable and harmonious with nature.

Location

The main site of the Expos is a forested area in Nagakute, east of Nagoya, covering an area of about 1.85km (450 acres). A smaller area of 0.15km (40 acres) nearby, accessible by gondola from the main site near Seto is also part of the Expo. Great care has been taken to build the pavilions out of recycled or recyclable materials, to lessen the environmental impact on the site, and to provide environmentally friendly transportation to and within the Expo area.

The expo will cost 340 billion yen ($3.3 billion) and organizers expect it to attract 15 million visitors.

The nearby city of Toyota will also have some related events, although there is no special area set aside.

The area in Nagakute can easily be reached from Nagoya by subway (Higashiyama line) to the last stop in Fujigaoka, followed by a ride on the newly built LINIMO, a magnetic levitation train.
