A quick trip of only 20 minutes on the shinkansen will take you to Toyama, another city of the arts, with the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design just a 15-minute walk from Toyama Station. Newly opened in 2017, this museum is a must for art lovers, with ambitious exhibits in a sleek, contemporary space. If that weren’t reason enough to visit Toyama, the “World’s Most Beautiful Starbucks” also calls the city home. Toyama truly is a city of beauty from top to bottom.
