I was in Toyama from 30 October – 3 November 2019 for business trip.
Originally, we plan to go to Toyama by Hokuriku Shinkansen (bullet train) but it was suspended because the railway was damaged by Typhoon 19.
I had a confidence that a Japanese railway company, JR Nishi Nihon (JR West Japan) will do their best to recover the line; in fact, it started its operation on 25 October 2019, meaning JR Nishi Nihon recovered Hokuriku Shinkansen in two weeks.
However, I was worried that it might take longer to recover to affect our business trip; therefore, we flew.
We safely arrived Toyama Airport.
There are four flights in a day between Tokyo/Haneda and Toyama.
It’s either two flights in early morning or 2 flights in late evening for convenience of business people.
Therefore, we arrived Toyama early on 30 October 2019.
We couldn’t check in so we dropped our luggage at hotel and walked to Toyama Station.
We took a taxi to visit Toyama Castle before going to exhibition hall, Toyama Techno Hall, for preparation for our participation in T-Messe 2019.
We climbed to Castle Tower.
There is a nice garden.
We had to make a move; we returned to Toyama Station area for lunch.
We had our lunch at Shirohacha.
Then went to exhibition hall, Toyama Techno Hall.
There is a vending machine for ice cream so we decided to take a break; I had a salty caramel.
We finished booth set up and returned to city centre to check in at hotel: Comfort Hotel Toyama Ekimae.
We went out for dinner at Chohachi.
I really enjoyed local specialty: Shiroebi (Japanese glass shrimp).￼
This Shiroebi no Oshizushi (Japanese glass shrimp pressed sushi) was awesome!
Work hard during day time and enjoyed nice dinner at night.
I also had crab at Sakanaya Dojo Toyama Ekimae Store.
Honestly, a casual dining place like Izakaya in Toyama serves very fresh, delicious seafood and very reasonable!
On last night, I had two dinners with different people.
After eating a quick dinner at Sakanaya Dojo Toyama Ekimae Store, I went to a train sushi restaurant.
I already had a nice seafood at Sakanaya Dojo so I thought I’m gonna have few sushi to accompany them.
But big NO.
After queuing for some time, we managed to get a table at Mawaru Toyamawan Sushitama Toyama Eki Store.
It was also awesome!
I enjoyed fresh seafood very much in Toyama.
I also enjoyed watching cute Murata Seisakusho (Murata Manufacturing Co Ltd) cheer leader’s cheering while working.
Murata Seisakusho is Japanese leading machinery and parts company.
By the time leaving Toyama, I start liking Toyama.
Now I want to go back to Toyama for seafood, Onsen (hot spring) and nice sceneries.
I started missing Toyama and feeling melancholic but soon I get excited finding Star Wars wrapped aircraft at Haneda Airport!
