The Chubu-Hokuriku Region

Spread out over a large area of the country, Chubu-Hokuriku includes the Pacific-bordering prefectures of Shizuoka, Aichi and Mie. In its centre is the landlocked prefecture of Gifu. This area is historically significant as the location of the ancient Tokaido road that linked Edo (modern-day Tokyo) to Kyoto.
The Sea of Japan coastline is known as the Hokuriku region, including Toyama, Fukui and Ishikawa, and is renowned for its heavy snowfall in winter and spectacular all-year-round vistas and seafood cuisine.
