Hot spring at Himi

Seafood and hot spring are the reason to visit “Himi“, north part of “Toyama”.

Rich sea stream gives us tons of seafood.

Now we have a special long vacation in Japan.

So to speak “Golden week”, lovely long term vacation almost a week.

That is good timing to go far with an ordinary family because everyone is free.

I choose hot spring and seafood at Himi, little fisherman’s village.

It takes almost 4 hours to reach there.

Take Hokuriku Shinkansen Express to Toyama and switch to the local train to Takaoka and finally reach to Himi station.

Take a taxi to reach the hotel “Isopp“.

It is off season here so I enjoy everything on my own.

The whole day you can occupy the huge hot spring.

So relaxing and Artistic days.

You will refresh to have warm and fresh air.
