Welcome to Tateyama Town! An Introduction

Thank you for expressing interest in Tateyama Town, Toyama Prefecture. We have a lot we want to share with you, but our website is still undergoing a lot of changes, so bear with us while we continue to update the site.

Tateyama Town is a breath-taking area surrounded by the Japan Alps. The town is known for its crystal-clear mountain water that aids in producing delicious rice and refreshing Japanese sake. There are dozens of Tateyama-brand items such as La France pear juice, deep-fried Tateyama croquette, and kakimochi, a dry, fluffy rice cake cracker made specially in our beloved town.

Our town is one of legends, worship, and mystery. The Ashikura-ji area in particular has made distinct efforts to preserve its ancient and holy past, and includes sites such as Tateyama Museum, Mandala Yuen Open Air Museum, and preserved monk's lodgings from the Meiji era. For those wanting to witness Real Japan, this holy area is not to be missed.

We hope that you can come visit soon and witness it all for yourself!
