It is a new, unique tourist route cutting through Aichi,Nagano,Gifu,Toyama,and Ishikawa prefectures from south to north. Named 'the Dragon Route' as the Noto Peninsula likened to Dragon's head, and the shape of the route just looks like the mystical rising dragon.
Normally the route starts from South of Aichi, but this time we have arranged the route starts from our TomeiYokohama store in Kanagawa, then enter this route from Nagano. There are a lot of superb views, historical sightseeing spots like a world cultural heritage 'Shirakawa-go' where the unique Japanese architecture 'Gassho-zukuri'remains, and the highlight of the tour - the only road in Japan that can be driven by the sea - 'Chirihama Nagisa Driveway' , etc.
