Reviewed:2018/11/26 Beautiful glass art - worth a visit
The museum is in the same building as a library. It's a very nice place to just rest and relax. The glass art is worth viewing.

          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.
