Welcome to the Shoryudo
The Shoryudo is one of seven regional tourist routes in Japan specifically designated by the Japanese government.
The Shoryudo traverses the very center of Japan. There are several themes that the Shoryudo focuses on, and which show what this region has to offer visitors: the mountains, including Mt. Fuji, the peak that symbolizes Japan; food and quality sake produced using the pure waters this region is blessed with; the samurai traditions and culture that made the region what it is today; and craftsmanship handed down from one generation of artisans to the next.
The Shoryudo, meaning "the way of the dragon," gets its name from the Chubu and Hokuriku regions (the prefectures of Toyama, Ishikawa, Fukui, Nagano, Gifu, Shizuoka, Aichi, Mie, and Shiga), which together make the shape of a dragon.
We'll be waiting for you on the Shoryudo!
