    富山でいちばん鱒の寿司を売っている 源さんの工場が見れます。鱒の寿司が空中を飛んで行く様がなかなかすごいです。ロビーには直売所もありました。

    Toyama Pref. Nantoshi Shimonashi 148
    Of all the traditional industries of Toyama Prefecture, Gokayama washi (Japanese paper) has the longest history. So long, in fact, that there are even records of it being dedicated to Maeda Toshinaga, the head of the Kaga Domain, over 500 years ago. This agricultural association located in Shimonashi, Nanto City, Toyama Prefecture sells this historic washi paper in the form of paper for paintings and calligraphy, washi-based folk crafts, and various washi-based sundries. It also launched the GOKKA brand of modern washi-based products such as gift bags and letter boxes. The association, which is located 1.5 kilometers east of the World Heritage site Ainokura Gassho-zukuri Village on Route 304, also offers paper-making lessons and facility tours.

    予約なし一人でもできます。 まず職人さんがやり方を一通り実際にやって見せてくれるのでわかりやすいです。 紙をすいて、その上に押し花の飾りを載せて乾燥させます。 体験自体はやることがそんなにありませんが機械などを見るのは珍しくて楽しかったです。 乾かすのに少し時間がかかります。 さほど高くもないので時間があるようなら体験されるのをおすすめします。

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.
