Nanto City Tourism Association
Conveying the charm of Nanto, a nostalgic place that makes you want to visit again and again.

The Nanto City Tourism Association is an organization that promotes the charms of Nanto City, Toyama Prefecture both domestically and internationally. Nanto City, located in the southwestern part of Toyama Prefecture, is blessed with a rich natural environment that changes with the seasons, and is a place where Japan's original scenery and good old Japanese traditional culture are still strongly preserved. Gokayama, known for its gassho-zukuri style villages, is truly a ``living world heritage site'' where people live with their own unique culture. The scattered villages spread across the countryside are also part of the special scenery unique to this region. From the medieval period to early modern times, Johana prospered for its silk textiles, and Inami, known for its wood carvings, is home to a rich history and culture, including Fukumitsu, where Shiko Munakata lived, Fukuno, which prospered as a market town, Iguchi, the village of camellia, and theater. Nanto's satoyama areas, such as Toga, which is a hub for urban exchange, are always filled with the charm of travel, and the people greet you with warm smiles.
