Toyama Glass Museum

Toyama is one of those prefectures that foreigners tend to forget BUT it has a lot to offer and is the real Japan, nothing to do with Kyoto or Tokyo, you will meet real people having real struggles real lives, this combined with a lot of traditions, history and landscapes that nothing beats


Spend 2 hours at the glass art museum, it is worth it. the building itself is new and is a masterpiece of architecture, created with local woods. there is a temporary and permanent exhibition, I had a look at the Lalique showcase from France and a very interesting one from Marta Klonowska. Then I truly enjoyed the work of Dale Chihuly but because there were signs everywhere not to share on SNS, I can only share little.  Although I respect and can understand his view, it is a miss as they truly deserve to be recognised

  1. Hello, Japanese person here. I’ve never been to Toyama, but from what I’ve heard, they’re supposed to have very good seafood (and were talking Japan standard seafood here so it should be banging! XD) Have you tried any dishes there?
