Welcome to the Shoryudo
The Shoryudo is located in the very center of Japan. The Shoryudo offers regional sightseeing routes that provide the best this region has to offer, with themes that include “mountains”, starting with Mt. Fuji, Japan’s most famous mountain; “food and famous sake brands” that are produced by the region’s abundance of clean water; history and traditional cultures shaped by the “samurai”; and “manufacturing” that is the creation and the legacy of master artisans. This part of Japan, the Chubu and Hokuriku regions (Toyama, Ishikawa, Fukui, Nagano, Gifu, Shizuoka, Aichi, Mie, and Shiga Prefectures), is called the Shoryudo Route (which means the “way of the rising dragon” in Japanese) because of its shape, which resembles a dragon. We can’t wait for you to come and visit the Shoryudo!
