    Toyama Pref. Toyamashi Minatoirifunechou 5 Toyama Mt. Fujiwa Canal Water Park
    This Starbucks Coffee is located inside Toyama Kansui Park, a 16-minute walk from Toyama Station's North Gate. It is notable for the simple design of its glass-walled building that blends into the scenery of the park. Customers can enjoy a coffee while taking in the beautiful scenery of Kansui Park, which was built on an old boat haven. The park is illuminated at night, giving guests an entirely different view to enjoy.

    We rushed here for the sunset, disappointed that the place was under renovation. Sunset in the park was beautiful. I can only imagine how nice it would be to have a cuppa too.

    Toyama Pref. Toyamashi Meirinchou 1-220 times when market and inside the Marche
    Shiroebitei is a specialist white prawn restaurant located in the Toyamarche shopping center on the ground floor level of Toyama Station. Besides white prawn tendon (a bowl of rice topped with deep-fried seafood) and white prawn sashimi don made using white prawn delivered fresh each morning from Shinminato fishing harbor, Shiroebitei also serves a range of other seafood don and tendon dishes featuring fish and seafood from the Sea of Japan. The “Kito Kito Set Meal,” which combines white prawn tempura with draft beer or sake, is also very popular. White prawn tempura, tendon and sashimi don are also available for take-out.

    I drop at the place in the afternoon, just to try the famous white shrimp fries. It is sweat and very tasty with the special salt. You can take it out but I strongly recommend to eat on site, so that...

Fresh shipments come in twice a day, at noon and at night, so customers can be assured that the seafood is fresh.

    Toyama Pref. Toyamashi Shintomichou 1-2-3CiCB1
    A ramen restaurant located on floor B1 of the CiC building, which is located just past the south exit of JR Toyama Station. Famous for its Toyama black ramen, a local favorite characterized by its dark black broth, the restaurant is a frequent destination for tourists. This flavorful broth, made by combining a chicken and seafood stock with a slow-stewed fish sauce, is the restaurant’s pride and joy. Despite appearances, the flavor is actually quite light. The stylish interior, accented with red here and there, makes it easy even for women to enter on their own.

    Came for the ramen but loved the gyoza! Amongst our group we ordered the black soy ramen, white shrimp ramen, roast pork rice and pork gyoza. I personally found the broth on my white shrimp ramen...

Each is served with arajiru, a soup made from fish scraps.

    We went for lunch at around midday the other day and after a short wait for our number to come up, we were seated. Two of the lunch specials had already sold out by this time, but there was still...

    Featuring lively events and sale of Uozu specialty goods and fresh sea fare taken up at Uozu Port, Toyama Prefecture, Sea Station Shinkiro is quite active early in the morning. Haggling and buying goods is a fun time, and early morning meals or beach-grilled foods are popular too. It is held on the second and fourth Sunday every month, from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., so check before you go. Seven minutes by car via Uozu Interchange on the Hokuriku Expressway.

    Toyama Pref. Kurobeshi Ikuji Nakaku 265
    This market is a 12-minute drive from Hokuriku Expressway's Kurobe Interchange. The market is comprised of two buildings; the Toretate-kan, which offers fresh fish and processed seafood, and the Dekitate-kan, which has restaurants and a take-out corner. At Chargrilling Restaurant Kokaito, diners can choose any of the fresh-caught seafood from Kurobe fishing port or Ikuji salted fish (a local delicacy made by the Ladies' Club of the JF Kurobe fishing cooperative) on offer and chargrill it themselves. We also recommend the local craft brew, Shozu Monogatari.

    We were driving from toyama to nagano and decided to stop by someplace for lunch. Stumbled across this place on TripAdvisor and decided to try it out! No regrets! In itself I believe its an...

    Toyama Pref. Toyamashi Otaguchidori 1-1-7
    "This ramen shop which opened in 1947 is the originator of Toyama black ramen, Toyama's first ""B-class gourmet."" The shop, located a one-minute walk from Toyama City Tram Line Grand Plaza Station, is frequented by celebrities. Its main item, chuka soba (ramen noodles), is notable for its dark black soup, roast pork, and coarse-ground pepper. The richly-flavored broth packs a punch that borders on briny. Diners who cannot handle the saltiness can eat the ramen with a side of white rice to adjust the flavor. Beloved by laborers in Toyama since right after the end of World War II, Toyama black ramen has been thought of as a soul food for generations of Toyama citizens."

    Nishichō Taiki is a lovely joint, an old shack rubbing shoulders with two larger buildings by the modern city centre of Toyama. Here is the original home of what today is known as Toyama Black. This...

It serves ramen made in-house with only natural ingredients and without any artificial chemical flavorings, as well as Maze Soba.

    Located on the eastern shore of Kurobe Dam, this rest house features great views of magnificent Lake Kurobe. The rest house's famous Kurobe Dam curry has a roux is tinted green with spinach to reflect the color of the lake's surface, while the while the rice is piled in a fan shape to look like the dam. The children's dam curry, which is topped with pieces of fried chicken representing the dam's Garve sightseeing boat, is also very popular. The rest stop also offers desserts which incorporate the dam's traits, such as their shatter zone chocolate mousse. In addition to serving food, the rest house also features a Kurobe Dam souvenir shop and a rest space.

    The resturant is packed with tourists. It is a great place for lunch. We have soba noodle and curry rice. The curry rice was much tastier compare to soba.

    This cafe is on the second floor of Murodo Terminal, or the third floor of Hotel Tateyama. It's an elegant, relaxed tearoom in front of the hotel front desk. Their cold-brew Mizudashi Coffee is made with Tateyama spring water and the cold brewing process keeps bitterness and tannin levels low, for an elegant, aromatic enjoyment. From mid-June through November, they use Tateyama Tamadono yusui spring water, chosen one of Top 100 Famous Water. They also sell cold-brew coffee in a limited edition tumbler you can take home.

    I like how even though you’re on top of a mountain with not much food options - these restaurants don’t charge you an arm and a leg for food. (Like cruise liners / Theme Parks)

    This restaurant offers noodles made from soba ground, kneaded, and boiled with heart. They use whole grain soba from Niigata and Fukui ground early every morning so that it doesn't lose fragrance, and quickly finish it into soba for fresh eating. We recommend the Zarusoba & Koagedashi meal set with agedashi fried tofu made with Gokayama tofu.

    Hand-made chewy soba noodles were delicious! I appreciate that the soba noodles for warm soup dishes are thicker than the normal-width soba noodles in cold dishes. The reason is because once boiled...

    Sakae Shokudo in Asahi Town, Shimoniikawa County, Toyama Prefecture is a famous restaurant for the local specialty tarajiru (cod soup). A building with countryside atmosphere, it stands on National Route 8 which is also called Tarajiru Kaido. Its tarajiru for which large chunks of cod are stewed in white miso (soybean paste) has a mild taste but not fishy taste. This superb and hearty dish has both simplicity and the dynamics of a unique fisherman’s dish. There is a range of menu items including oyakodon (a rice bowl with chicken and eggs), katsudon (a rice bowl topped with cutlets) and set meals. The side menu items are help-yourself style from a display case.

Toyama Areas

Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
