Places of interest in Toyama
The Toyama leg of the Torch Relay begins in the city of Oyabe and will journey through the western area of the prefecture, making its way to the city of Takaoka where a celebration will take place at the end of the first day. On the second day, the Torch Relay will leave the town of Asahi, travelling across the eastern part of the prefecture and arriving in the city of Toyama for a celebration.
Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Toyama include: the village of Gokayama in Nanto, with its traditional thatched roofed houses registered as a World Heritage Site; Himinoe Park in the city of Himi with its spectacular views of the Tateyama mountain range; and one of Japan’s top 100 castles, Toyama Castle in the city of Toyama.
