Prefectures of Japan / Toyama


@


Magnificent panorama view of the 3,000-meter-high Tateyama Mountain Range. Traditional culture and beautiful views of the four seasons.
Situated roughly in the northern center of Honshu, stretching from north to south, Toyama shares its border with Niigata and Nagano in the east, Gifu in the south, and Ishikawa in the west. Surrounded by steep mountains on three sides, and spreading its fields as if to embrace the deep bay, the prefecture is a small area, only 50 kilometers in radius, with the prefectural capital Toyama City at its center. Over the years, Toyama has enjoyed a relationship with other countries located on the opposite shore, such as countries on the Asian Continent and the Korean Peninsula. With its advantages and rich experience, Toyama has played an active role as the center of the Northwest Pacific Region.
