The 10 Best Sushi restaurants in Toyama

Toyama station

Toyama is my favorite city. But actually, it is not a very famous tourist destination. Toyama is highly my recommendation for all tourists, and they have everything. In this post 3 reasons to visit Toyama-ken , I wrote about the reasons. The main reason why I recommend it is SUSHI. You can enjoy the most delicious sushi in Toyama. I’ll introduce five of my best sushi restaurants there. By the way, I am Jupiter Ishida, I traveled around all prefectures in Japan and love eating. Let’s get started!

Where is Toyama-ken

Toyama Prefecture is one of the prefectures in the Hokuriku Region. It is rich, located between the Sea of Japan and the Tateyama mountain range. A famous nearby city is Kanazawa. With the recent opening of the Shinkansen bullet train line from Tokyo, it takes only about 2 hours to get there from Tokyo.

Why is Sushi in Toyama so good?

Because Toyama Bay. Toyama Bay is so abundant with fish that it is called a natural fish tank. Nutritious melted snow water flowing from the Tateyama Mountain Range is one factor that makes the fish grow so delicious. Famous seafood here includes cold yellowtail, white shrimp, and firefly squid. Whatever you eat is delicious.
