  • Small scale castle....I would say... if you compare it with other big name castles. But the surrounding park is nice and good for walking.
  • Not much to see. The park is wide but not so moving. There's far better in Toyama, like for example the mizukinenkouen in Inami.
  • quite nice Japanese castle. not much people which is good for a walk.
  • Beautiful castle and garden. The castle hosts museum of Toyama, but the castle is a rebuilt during the modern times.
  • Not good for viewing the mountain range, because the observation deck is covered by nets,

Where to stay in Toyama

Toyama's wide variety of lodging options lie scattered all around town, but especially near the main train station. Three- and four-star hotels make up most of the market, offering mid-range amenities and services, such as private parking, free Wi-Fi, and simple, modern rooms. Search farther from the train station for more affordable choices, as the prices run a bit higher in that area compared to the rest of the city.
