Toyama Prefecture is located virtually in the center of Japan, and is surrounded by the steep mountains and river valleys of the Northern Alps.
Though a series of connecting transportation routes, anyone can leisurely enjoy the nature of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, where you can take in the seasonal beauty of the Tateyama Mountain Range and its 3,000-meter peaks.
Toyama Bay is known as a "natural fish tank," with its fast-running water created from the 4,000 meter difference in elevation from the 3,000-meter peaks of the Tateyama Mountain Range to the 1,000-meter depths of the bay, providing nutrient-rich waters that produce a variety of delicious fish. Thanks to this steep coastal gradient, the fishing grounds are close to the port, making it easy to enjoy fresh seafood.
In addition, you will also find Toyama to be brimming with the historical and artistic appeal of Japan, such as the World Heritage Site of Gokayama village, the national treasure of Takaokasan Zuiryu-ji Temple, and traditional festivals throughout the prefecture.

All Itineraries

    Traveling under the theme of "A Journey to be Reborn, Physically and Mentally, through Traditional Food and Experiences," you will visit a variety of recommended spots from Tokyo to Hokuriku.

    In Tokyo you will visit the Nihondo Kampo Museum and the only valley in all of Tokyo's 23 wards, and will then experience Japanese kaiseki, traditional multi-course haute cuisine, at a restaurant in a garden that once served as a residence for a daimyo lord and their hatamoto vassals.

    From there, you will make your way to Hokuriku, where you will experience both hot springs connected to famed haiku master Matsuo Basho (1644 - 1694) and zen meditation at Eiheiji temple, which had two stars bestowed upon it by the Michelin Green Guide Japan. Following this, you will refresh your body and mind by meditating under a waterfall at Oiwasan Nissekiji temple.
    Becoming familiar with traditional crafts that are rooted in people's lifestyle and the climate in Japan will lead to a deeper understanding of Japanese culture. From Tokyo to Hokuriku, explore the cities where traditional crafts were born and thereby discover parts of Japan's culture and charm that you did not know about.

    In Tokyo this route will take you to spots related to bonsai trees and Hokusai's ukiyo-e pictures, while in Hokuriku it will take you to spots related to glass crafts and famous Kutani-ware ceramics. This is a route recommended for people who are interested in traditional Japanese crafts.
