About the Story of 13000 Feet

From the grand Tateyama mountain range to the world's most beautiful Toyama Bay,
passengers can experience every aspect of Toyama's beauty,
in which the elevation difference spans a miraculous 4,000 meters.

The Tateyama mountain range is 3,000 meters high, and Toyama Bay is 1,000 meters deep. The difference in elevation is about 4,000 meters. Toyama Prefecture has one of the world’s most rare and unique terrains. Oxygen and nutrient-rich subsoil water from the Northern Alps flow into the Sea of Japan, which is why some 500 of the approximately 800 different fish species found in the Sea of Japan live in Toyama Bay. “The Story of 13000 Feet” provides a dining experience to savor Toyama’s four seasons and elevation difference. It includes fresh fish from Toyama Bay, often referred to as “a natural preserve,” as well as farmland delicacies produced from mineral-rich snow melt-water of Tateyama. Toyama’s scenery outside the window will add to your dining experience. We hope you enjoy a relaxing journey.
  • Note: 13,000 feet is approximately 4,000 meters. It indicates the elevation difference between the Tateyama mountain range and the depth of Toyama Bay.
  • Note: Toyama Bay joined the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club supported by UNESCO in October 2014.
