Modern Japanese Literature and Nagoya

... Thinking there must be numerous deep connections between Nagoya (my new station) and modern Japanese literature, I ran a quick search for "Nagoya/名古屋" on both this blog and my Encyclopedia; only two items came up: (1) Tsubouchi Shōyō was born near Nagoya;(2) the two male characters in Izumi Kyōka's "The Saint of Mount Kōya" 「高野聖」 (1900; study guide here) depart from Nagoya together.... Surely this can't be all... Somebody help me out here....
