What is “the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club” ?
This association, formed in 1997, includes internationally recognized bays such as the World Heritage sites Mont Saint-Michel Bay in France and Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, as well as San Francisco Bay in the USA. The club aims to promote tourism and the protection of environmental resources to ensure sustainable development of its members.
Toyama Bay’s qualifications:
Perhaps the biggest point in favor of Toyama Bay’s membership was the view of the 3,000-meter-tall Tateyama Mountain Range over the sea. From the mountain peaks to the 1,000-meter depths of the bay, the total elevation difference of over 4,000 meters forms part of a unique terrain rarely seen anywhere in the world. The unusual geographical features create a bountiful ocean, which boasts a huge variety of high-quality marine products. If you enjoy seafood, then you simply must come to Toyama to try these delicacies for yourself !
