Toyama Castle

There was a time in history when Toyama Prefecture was famous as a medicine seller.

The reason was that during the Edo period, feudal lords had to stay in the Edo shogunate (present-day Tokyo) for a certain period of time. The reason for this was that during the Edo period, feudal lords were required to stay in Edo Shogunate (present-day Tokyo) for a certain period of time. During their stay in Edo, they gave medicines to another lord who was injured, which led to a rumor that medicines from Toyama Prefecture were effective, and people from all over the country began to buy them.
From there, medicine developed as a local industry in Toyama Prefecture.
This is the history of this castle.

The most famous product in Toyama is “shiroebi” (white shrimp).
White shrimp can be caught in Toyama Bay, but their freshness is short and they cannot be distributed to distant places. It is only available in the Toyama area, so we hope you will try it when you visit Toyama.
