What? The Alps also exist in Japan? Indeed, the Northern Alps are the common name for the Hida Mountains, which extend across the prefectures of Toyama, Niigata, Gifu and Nagano.
The Northern Alps are also called the Japanese Alps when they are grouped together with the Kiso Mountains (the Central Alps) and the Akashi Mountains (the Southern Alps), the mutual name "Japanese Alps" was given by the British mining engineer William Gowland in the Meiji period.
Yes, the English again. But we are happy to have immortalized one of the most beautiful mountain ranges of the Japanese main island on our products.
