In Toyama Prefecture, which borders Ishikawa Prefecture, there are many spots for autumn leaves such as Jinzu Gorge, where you can drive and enjoy the spectacular view of the gorge, and Kurobe Gorge, where you can enjoy the colorful view while riding on a trolley train. In addition, the dignified colorful mountain range seen from the Tateyama Ropeway, and the beautiful scenery of Takaoka Castle Park reflected in the rich natural surroundings are views you won't want to miss especially in autumn in Toyama.

Takaoka Castle Park

Best time to see: mid-November to late November

Built in 1609 by Toshinaga Maeda, the second generation head of the Kaga Maeda family, approximately 1/3 of the park is covered by water moat. Just like the spring cherry blossom viewing season, this is a famous spot that attracts many visitors during the fall foliage season.

Tateyama Bijodaira

Around Bijodaira, which is approximately 1,000 meters above sea level, there is a primary forest with a mixture of Japanese cypress and beech. The contrast between the colorful mountains is interesting.

Having the longest fall foliage period in Japan, Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is full of highlights. The view of the three-tiered autumn leaves that can only be seen in the mountains from the Tateyama Ropeway is truly a sight to behold.

A beautiful gorge with a length of approximately 15km carved by the Takahara River and Miyagawa River originating in the Chubu Mountains, merging with the Jinzu River.
