Toyama started its theme day at Japan Pavilion this morning with the theme “abundant water against snow.”
Toyama is a prefecture along the Sea of Japan coast in central Japan, the first prefecture of Japan coming to the Expo for promotions.
It boasts advanced industrial technology and abundant fisheries. Surrounded by steep mountains, valleys and lakes, it is also blessed with beautiful landscapes.
The abundance of pure water flowing from mountains year-round makes it the theme of Toyama Day.
Toyama prefecture has a long-term friendship with China; in particular, it has had close cooperation with Shanghai in economy, culture and education in past years. Tomorrow the prefecture will open a local product shop in Shanghai’s Xintiandi to promote its products and tourism.
