Himi Banyagai

Reviewed By Cariejhow - Singapore, Singapore

Not alot of tourists come here but I chance upon this place while planning my self drive trip in Central Japan.
We drove here from Toyama Station about 1.5hrs... There are a few blocks of buildings serving different things from fresh seafood market, food court, local specialties, rotating sushi restaurant serving freshly caught HIMI seafood.
After having your fill of seafood, head towards the back of the blocks facing the sea. Cross the road and you will see there is an Observatory Stairway that gives you a panaromic view of the HIMI Bay.
After having a fantastic view of HIMI Bay, we crossed back to the HIMI Fishing port blocks... look out for a swinging bell/bench on the far right... there is a small foot onsen building thats accessible free of charge! just take off your shoes and fold up your pants and join the locals in the soothing onsen dip! It's free!

Himi City Shiokaze Gallery

It's a small but nice gallery, 10 minutes walk from the JR station. Along the road, you won't miss the those ninja statues, temple and the Clock, so it would be a very nice and leisure walk.

Manga Road

Reviewed By 1966Jamo - Takaoka, Japan

If you're into Ninja Hattori manga, you'll enjoy walking the streets in the main part of town and seeing fibreglass characters from the series. The Kozen-ji temple also has a set of stone statues of some of the characters out the front.
Motoo Abiko was born in the temple as his father was the High Priest. Motoo is one of two writers from Toyama who call themselves Fujiko Fujio. Together they are credited with writing both Ninja Hattori and Doraemon. The Ninja Hattori statues were design as a novel way to promote the town of Motoo's birth.
Himi is also famous for its food - The stand outs for me were the beautiful beef, Amberjack (Yellow Tail) fish sushimi and Himi Udon Noodles (I had the fresh noodles in hot broth). So, you can walk around town and take photos of the many statues and stop in one of the restaurants and try the local specialties.

Nagasaka Rice Terraces

Reviewed By takashi714 - Imizu, Japan

氷見市の宇波地区の民宿街から山の方へかなり行ったところにあります。
自動車がないともちろん行けません。
近くには昔から氷見市がPRしていて有名な長坂の大椿もあります。
しかしこの大椿も田んぼの中に1本椿の木があるだけでさほどのものでありません。
本当に普通の生産性が悪いだけの田んぼの風景です。
このような風景は氷見から能登にかけての中山間部ではどこででもみられる光景です。
棚田越しに立山連峰を見ても景色としては氷見の海から見る立山連峰とは比べ物になりません。棚田越しに立山連峰が見える地点は他にもあります。
立山連峰が見える海の風景はやはり氷見ならば虻が島、唐島、阿尾城址がある岸壁の3カ所からが氷見のイメージの代表です。
今更ながら全く無名だった長坂の棚田などPRすること自体、道に迷うような人が出る原因になると感じています。
ここからは観光地と呼ばれる各所へ道だけはつながっています。
例えば、今石動城、一刎一夜城など戦国時代前中期の山城のはしごなどもできます。
また能登へも行けます。
しかし普通車で行くには少し危ないところもかなりあります。
私はこのあたりの山へ入るときはかならず4WDのRV車で行きます。
多くの車が車高が低いので車の腹が擦って動けなくなるのを見ているからです。
もし観光で行くのなら無理せず行けるところまでいって戻るのが一番です。
長坂の棚田からいろいろ山道を通って各観光地へ行くのはおすすめしません。

縄文時代にこの洞窟に住居があったとのこと。
中にも入れてそんなに奥深い洞窟ではありませんが、縄文人もここに居たのかと思うと不思議な感じがしました。
近くに海水浴場があるので、夏場に行ってみるのもよさそうと思いましたが、冬だったので日本海の荒波を眺めて帰ってきました。
