Travel to Toyama to Peek the Japanese Alps

Photography Mountains Shoryudo Toyama Chubu Hokuriku

Who knew that Japan had its very own Swiss Alps? Just 2.5 hours by train from Tokyo is Toyama Prefecture, one of Japan’s smaller prefectures that borders Ishikawa and Nagano. It may be small but with the Hida Mountains to its back and the Japan Sea to its front, the prefecture boasts an abundant amount of picturesque beauty, as showcased by local photographer Yasuto Inagaki, who has been sharing photographs of his home on social media.
