The regions of the Kurobe Gorge and the Unazuki Onsen (Unazuki Hot Springs), Kurobe River's alluvial fan spring group, and the mystic waters of Toyama Bay, are all features of the unique local natural environment of mountains, rivers and ocean.

Kurobe is also the location of the headquarters of regional firefighting operations and Kurobe Hospital that serves the surrounding area. Due to its excellent international education and welfare/childcare provisions, Kurobe has been placed 15th out of 791 in "The Best Places to Live in Japan" (2015) rankings thanks to its focus on functionality and balance as its defining characteristics.

Furthermore, in March 2015, as a result of the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen to Kanazawa and of Kurobe-Unazukionsen Station being located in this city, Tokyo can be reached in just over two hours. This is one of the reasons why many people from both inside and outside of the country are visiting Kurobe City.

Access

  • From Tokyo: 150 mins by bullet train
  • From the nearest airport (Toyama Airport): 40 mins by car
