  • The journey between Tokyo and the mountain town of Takayama is often made by tourists,

  • with a number of routes available which incorporate various modes of transport including train,

  • bus and airplane.

  • For this trip, we wanted to focus on the route via the city of Toyama, which is located on

  • the Sea of Japan coast and offers much to visitors who decide to explore the city on

  • their way between Tokyo and Takayama.

  • My name is Sam Evans, and today I'll be doing just that

  • Here's the plan: We start off the day in Takayama, and take a stroll around its popular

  • morning market before heading north to Toyama city.

  • To do this, we'll take a Wide View Hida Train along the Takayama Line.

  • After arriving in Toyama City, we'll head straight over to a local restaurant to enjoy

  • a delectable sushi lunch, and then move to another part of the city where we'll take

  • a boat ride and enjoy scenic views along the way.

  • After alighting, we'll head to one of the area's most attractive art museums before

  • making our way back to Toyama Station and then on, by shinkansen, towards Tokyo.

  • So follow along, as we go on a train trip from Takayama to Toyama City.

  • So we start the day today in Takayama, and after this we are going to head north and

  • check out some of the famous attractions in the city of Toyama.

  • But right now we've got a little bit of time before our train so let's check out

  • Takayama's famous morning market.

  • From Takayama's old town we make the short walk to Takayama station at which point we will board

  • the Wide View Hida towards Toyama City where we will have lunch near the station.

  • So we've just arrived in Toyama and what better way to begin any visit to this city

  • than with some local Toyamawanzushi, and we're here at Mikizushi and we are about to enjoy

  • a course lunch, so let's do it.

  • Following our lunch at Mikizushi, we head back to the station, from where we will board

  • the Portram to Iwasehama station.

  • The pier where we will board our cruise boat is located only five minutes away from the station.

  • So, we've just finished the boat cruise and now we're enjoying some really nice views

  • in this park and in a minute we're going to head over to the building behind me which

  • is the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art and Design.

  • After the museum, it's time to end our day and make our way towards Tokyo by Shinkansen.

  • Another way to travel back to Tokyo is by taking one of the multiple flights departing

  • daily from Toyama Airport.

  • Thanks for joining me, I hope this video has been enjoyable and even inspire some ideas,

  • should you travel to Toyama city.
