You can go to Takaoka city, Yao city, and Tonami city.
This tour is recommended for couples 65-70 from overseas. If you visit Toyama, you’ll definitely want to make a stop at Gokayama, even just to look at the houses.

1Etchu Yatsuo Base OYATSU
Etchu Yatsuo Base OYATSU is a lodging facility and community space in Yatsuo famous for its Owara Kaze no Bon event. It is a warehouse-style mansion built in 1872, and it was originally used as a wholesale store for silk thread and Japanese paper as well as a residence for silkworm merchants. The building was first used as a cargo collection space for both raw materials and finished products, but over time it was remodeled to become what is currently known as Etchu Yatsuo Base OYATSU.
2Historic Village of Gokayama
A top destination for many visitors to Japan, Gokayama is a group of Japanese style village houses which is surrounded by steep mountains where winter brings heavy snowfall up to 2 meters high. However, Gokayama is not just special because of its village houses. The overall scenery, which also includes rice fields and stone walls, is a rare sight in Japan. It is believed that the oldest existing village in this location had been constructed all the way back in the 17th century.
3Amaharashi Kaigan Beach
With its name translating directly into “sunshine after the rain”, Amaharashi Kaigan Beach is popular for its magnificent reef and Japanese Pine trees. Sitting on the beach to overlook the sunrise where the sun shines upon the reef, with mountain ranges so close by is a rare experience. This may be the reason why Amaharashi Kaigan Beach has inspired so many Japanese poems. Historically, the Amaharashi Kaigan Beach has long been favored location by Japanese poets, and it appears in a large number of Japan’s most famous poem collections.
