The Tateyama Mountain Range over the sea

In Toyama Bay, which is referred to as a “natural fish tank,” various types of fish can be caught all year round. You can enjoy fresh seafood, including Himi’s winter yellowtail, which is famous all over Japan, spring sardines, and summer bluefin tuna. There are many other fishing sites in Japan, but the fish that are caught off the coast of Himi are particularly prized, and widely known as “brand-name fish.”

Unforgettable sunrises

You can enjoy seasonal panoramic views of the Japan Sea and Tateyama Mountain Range over the sea in Himi. The view of the rising sun from the Himi Coast is superb; it is considered to be one of “Japan’s one hundred best views.” If the forecast is for fine weather, how about getting up early to see the sunrise? This is one of the ways to enjoy Himi.

鮮度 

A wealth of seafood and traditional fishing

Because of its abundance of fish, Toyama Bay is referred to as a “natural fish tank.” The method of catching fish without damaging it is called “Etchu -style fixed-net fishing.” Chilling the fish caught by means of a fixed net in ice water while in the boat off the shore is the key for keeping it fresh. A passion for freshness is the reason why fish caught in Himi is so delicious.

Marumage Festival originates from the story of geiko (geisha girls) who went to Senjuji Temple to pray for a happy marriage in marumage style (with their hair in a chignon, which is the hairstyle of married women). Every year on April 17th, a parade of unmarried women in colorful kimono wends its way along the streets led by girls wearing flower-hats. (These days, anyone can sign up to join the parade.)
