Places noted in connection with Toyama literature

9. Fushiki

Saisei Murou, Yoshie Hotta

Once prospering as a key port of call along the Kitamaebune northern-bound shipping route, Fushiki is the home of the former Akimoto Family Residence, which has now been converted into a history museum that retains the only remaining tower in Takaoka City that was used to watch ships coming in and out of the port. Local Akutagawa Prize winner Yoshie Hotta depicted the life of shipping agents in those days in his work Tsuru no Ita Niwa. Saisei Murou’s Utsukushiki Hyōga also tells a story set in the Fushiki district, depicting the time when it was flourishing as a Kitamaebune hub port.
