Tucked away in the middle of Toyama, one of Japan's least visited prefectures, is a little town called, Tonami. With a little less than 50,000 people, Tonami is one of Toyama's hidden gems. At the beginning of each spring, this little town explodes in a welter of vibrant colours. A romance fills the air as golden yellows, seductive reds, innocent whites and pleasant purple blossoms of more than 400 varieties of tulips are displayed at the Tonami Tulip Garden in the city's municipal park, leaving everyone who came to see them mesmerized by their beauty. If you ever have the opportunity, visit Tonami. You will find that some of the greatest treasures are sometimes not the ones we've read about or seen pictures of, but the ones we discover ourselves in a town such as this.
