-- “Know and Taste the Wonders of Toyama Prefecture” Press Lunch --
Toyama Prefecture is located in the north central part of Honshu and is blessed with an extremely varied and dynamic topography, from the 3000m high peaks in the Tateyama Mountain Range, to a depth of over 1000m in Toyama Bay, creating a height difference of over 4000m. The large amount of snow that fall onto the peaks melts and becomes swift rivers which then flow into Toyama Bay. Known as a “natural fish tank” this bay boasts fishing grounds near the ports, and around 500 different species of fish.
Furthermore, Toyama Prefecture has been developing a new rice cultivar to deal with recent global warming. Not only is it adapted to high temperatures, it is more productive due to its shorter stalk, as well as being resistant to typhoons and other disasters. The prefecture is currently starting to market this product while looking towards a full scale release this autumn.
Toyama Prefecture will be organizing a lunch presentation at Nihonbashi Toyama, a space for the promotion of Toyama right in the capital city area, in order to let people discover Toyama Bay, the mysterious sea, as well as other wonders of Toyama Prefecture, and to showcase the taste of Toyama’s delicacies from the new rice cultivar to Toyama Bay seafood.
To participate, please apply according to the outline below. We hope to see you there!
