What makes Toyama Prefecture the place to visit is the 3,000m high 'Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route' mountain range trek. Japan's largest dam, Kurobe Dam, can be found along the way, and where tourists like to see the water being discharged from the dam. Unforgettable seafood cuisine is abundant here; from the Shiro-ebi (Japanese glass shrimp), which is only caught in this region; the fatty fish Buri (yellowtail); and the Hotaru-ika (firefly squid), which goes perfectly with a drink. It is also famous for being home to what is considered the most beautiful looking branch of Starbucks can also be found here. The world's longest bench, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, can also be found here.
