    14時くらいに訪問。 食事処のます寿司とぶり寿司がセットになった御膳が売り切れていました。 どちらも食べたかったのに、一足遅かったです。 お土産コーナーで買った商品を食事処の中で食べることができます! お茶も頂けますよ! せっかくだし…と特選のお高い方を購入しました。 ます寿司初体験なので他店とは比較できませんが、おいしかったです。 工場見学はとても狭いですが(笑)ビデオが流れていてとてもわかりや...

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.
