Hokuriku Shin-Etsu / Chubu

Seeing all the great sights and shopping at the latest outlet mole in Toyama, a city of medicine.

A recommendation is a tourist rout moving around enjoyable spots for broad-ranging customers, such as Glass Museum opened in summer, 2015 and Kansui Koen (canal park) including Starbucks Coffee, so-called “the most lovely café in the world”, followed by shopping at a popular outlet mall. This course also contains interesting institutions related to a system of home stock sale by itinerant medicine merchant, which is peculiar to Toyama-ken.
