Amaharashi-coast

There is a very beautiful scenery in Toyama Prefecture.
Toyama is famous for its Tateyama mountain range.
In addition, this prefecture faces the sea.
From Amaharashi coast, you can see the sea and mountain range at once.
It’s like a magic trick.

You can go there by local line.
But car rental is the best.
Because there is a nice “MICHI-NO-EKI(road station)” there.
It is a facility for drivers.
It’s great to have a cup of coffee here while looking at this beautiful view.

It’s not very famous for tourists, but the city is very good for travel.

From here you can go to Gokayama and Shirakawa-go.
There is also a good place to access Kanazawa.
It is also easy to get to Amaharashi-coast.

Of course, there are a few things to see in Takaoka as well.
Takaoka Castle Ruins is now a beautiful park.
There is also a temple that is a national treasure in Japan.
And, after all, it is the Great Buddha that is unique.
This Great Buddha is said to be the most beautiful man in Japan.

Kanazawa,another Kyoto

It is not too famous as Kyoto, but it is a wonderful city.
Do you know Kanazawa?

This old town was built by the Maeda family around the 16th century.
Fortunately, the city was not burned during the war.

The cherry blossoms of the famous garden “Kenrokuen” are enjoyed by local people.
Of course, this is also nice in other seasons.

This is a secret, but I like Kanazawa better than Kyoto.
