Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Chubu  /  Toyama Prefecture  /  Namerikawa
Namerikawa is a city located in Toyama Prefecture, Japan.As of 2003, the city has an estimated population of 33,772 and a population density of 618.42 persons per km², The total area is 54.61 km².The city was founded on March 1, 1954. Once a rural town in the Hayatsuki Delta overlooking Toyama bay, then prospering as an inn town on the Old Hokuriku Roadway, in recent years Namerikawa has become home to large enterprise and continues to develop as an industrial city.GeographyNamerikawa is situated in the northeast part of Toyama Prefecture. It is bounded by Toyama Bay to the north, Hayatsuki River to the east, the city of Toyama to the west, and the lower reaches of the Kamiichi River to the south and southwest. The two rivers, Hayatsuki and Kamiichi, separate Namerikawa from the city of Uozu and the town of Kamiichi respectively.TourismThe coast of Namerikawa is the habitat of the world famous glowing firefly squid, which surface yearly in a phenomenon that has been designated a special natural monument. To promote firefly-squid-themed eco-tourism and education, the world's only firefly squid museum opened in March 1998.Another mainstay of Namerikawa pride is deep seawater (深層水), which is collected at a depth of up to 300 meters from Toyama Bay. The water's special properties and mineral content make it popular as a health product. Namerikawa has a deep seawater spa, which differs from other Japanese hot springs and bath houses in that it uses salt water piped in directly from the sea.
