Rural Toyama

​The next day was a long one, as we made our business trip to Toyama. After a few transfers between the JR train and Shinkansen, heading further east for a one way trip of four hours, we finally got to our destination. 

A hydroponics farm located in a small rural town, the building was an older one but well kept. Inside housed a few employees and a small room that contained the hydroponics system. Without the need for natural sunlight and simply through the mix of water and fertiliser, the system can easily grow any type of fruit or vegetable given the proper settings, at a reduced timeframe.

After an exhausting and lengthy return trip to Osaka, we went directly to the busy main district of Shinsaibashi for dinner. Our hosts brought us to Tako Tako King, which is well known for its okonomiyaki and frequented by locals and travellers alike. The food is on the more affordable side, around ¥1000 per person and is better suited for sharing.
