Toyama ( Japanese 富山 市 , - shi ) is a city and the administrative seat of Toyama Prefecture in Japan . It is located on Honshū , the main island of Japan, on the coast of the Sea of Japan at Toyama Bay . Toyama has been a university city since 1949 .

Toyama is an old castle town that was home to a branch of the Maeda clan with an income of 100,000 koku from the 17th century . Shortly before the end of the Second World War, the city was almost completely destroyed in an air raid on August 2, 1945.

In addition to mechanical engineering ( Nachi-Fujikoshi Corp. ), the pharmaceutical industry and an oil refinery are of economic importance. The Kamiokande experiment is taking place in a mine near the city , in which the lifespan of the proton is to be determined.
