This study analyzes the pedagogical use of information and communication technology (ICT) resources by teachers in public schools in Toyama, Japan. The main results demonstrated a positive impact of the use of ICT and the Internet. Furthermore, it was found that ICT is significantly beneficial for student motivation. In addition, the use of ICT improves capacity building in students. However, due to a lack of training and equipment in schools, teachers face various problems when using ICT. Therefore, the implementation of ICT in schools in Toyama has been well developed, but there are aspects that still need to be improved to reach an effective integration of ICT.
