Torigoe is one of my favorite places in the world. A charming little town nestled into the foothills of Mt. Haku and the Japanese Alps, it is full of stunning natural beauty, grandmas and grandpas tending to their rice fields and vegetable gardens, and a whole tribe of wild monkeys! These are some of my favorite sites, including a few places in neighboring towns.
Flowing from the Japan Alps all the way out to the Sea of Japan, the Tedori River is the main attraction. There are a ton of different places to catch a glimpse of it. You can walk along it at this roadside rest but my favorite view is from this bridge. There’s generally not to much traffic so you can take a minute to appreciate the view.
