Dine at a local restaurant,
or cook for yourself
The MINKA Riverside Villas are just a short walk from a number of sushi restaurants, izakaya pubs, cafes and bars.
Another nightlife district with even more to offer is just a 40-minute tram ride away, outside the North Exit of Takaoka Station.
You can also prepare your own meals by purchasing groceries at local supermarkets and specialty stores.
Relax and sit down to a meal you've prepared yourself, in the privacy of your own dining room with a view of the river.
Local Food
Why not try your hand at cooking some of our local seafood?
While we don't offer meal service, your kitchen is equipped with all the tools, tableware and cutlery you'll need.
Local supermarkets are stocked with reasonably priced, fresh seafood, delivered daily from the Shinminato fishing port, right at our doorstep. If you're unsure of your fish-cleaning skills, you can ask the supermarket staff to prepare your fish, and they'll even slice it for sashimi if you wish.
If you're planning to prepare full-scale meals, we recommend staying at Umineko, which has a spacious kitchen.

Fresh Fish
Shinminato is famous for its seafood. Within walking distance you'll find both Kamon Shopping Center and Horita, supermarkets that stock fresh fish, as well as Kataguchiya, which offers prepared foods. Kitto-kito Ichiba, Shinminato's fisherman's wharf and a popular tourist destination, is just minutes away. Along the Uchikawa River, IMATO specializes in the finest high-grade fish (reservations required/inquire in advance). Local fish, caught that very morning, is available at these and other merchants.
Produce and Other Items
Albis, a local supermarket, has a section devoted to local produce, rice, eggs and other ingredients. About 20 minutes away by car are Fresh Satake and Kurosakiya, which specialize in carefully selected, locally produced foods. We recommend these merchants for guests who wish to enjoy Toyama's regional bounty.
At MINKA Riverside Villas, we offer for purchase carefully selected seasonings in convenient smaller sizes, including mineral-rich salt prepared using traditional methods and minimally refined organic sugar.
Offerings may include salt from the Noto Peninsula, additive-free soy sauce brewed in the Hokuriku region, organic olive oil, organic sugar and others.
Note: Availability subject to change without notice.
MINKA Riverside Villas has partnered with a local merchant specializing in high-grade fish. Ask us when you make your reservation, and we can have them prepare the freshest, finest-quality seasonal fish, rich in flavor. Let us know if you have any specific requests, whether for sashimi, dried fish, or even whole fish cleaning. All items are market priced.
