Journeys in Japan

Season 2, Episode 28 of 52

This neighborhood lying alongside the Uchikawa River in Imizu City, Toyama Prefecture, has been a thriving fishing port for over 1,000 years. Because of its proximity to the water and its unified townscape, it has been nicknamed the "Venice of Japan." Through the centuries, people in this district have lived alongside the river, protecting and handing down their traditional lifestyle from to the next generation.
