What's Hietsuno?

Hietsuno is a beautiful area of Japan with many sights to see. Located almost in the center of Japan's main island, the area was once composed of three separate cities and villages—Hida, Etchu, and Noto—from which Hietsuno gets its name, using the first Chinese character from each name.
With its variety of festivals and events, to its local food sourced from land and sea, beautiful vistas, and unique historical sites and cultural facilities, Hietsuno attracts many visitors through the year.
Access via highway and shinkansen has improved dramatically, making it much easier to visit. Why not make your visit to Hietsuno?
