History of Toyama
Toyama was ruled by strong neighboring clans or prefectures for a long time and also has long suffered from natural disasters. The Jinzu and the Joganji rivers often caused floods and strong southerly winds have frequently caused major fires. Toyama is no stranger to big earthquakes, cold weather in summer and heavy snow in winter. It was not wealthy, but the Toyama clan developed industries in the Edo period (1603-1867) suited to the environment of this region, overcoming adversities.
