Japanese Alps

The prefectures of Nagano, Toyama and the region of Gifu compose most of the Japanese Alps, it is a fantastic and unique region, among my favourites.

only 2h30 shinkansen from Tokyo and you are in Toyama where you can enjoy great seafood and go hiking, highly recommended

It is a rich region for

  • landscapes, nothing beats it
  • pottery, a lot of handicraft
  • rice, because of the quality of the water and the altitude that create a perfect combination
  • glass, the Toyama Kanazawa region is famous for the glassware and the industry around glass cutting
