  • You could just visit the castle during the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Castle and Cherry is the best combination, with picturesque views. Castle itself is destroyed in the air raid, but it is Castle was built as a symbol of reconstruction. Hall was in beautiful condition, as the Park has become a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens.

  • When he saw the Castle and absolutely worth. But I thought, new monumental symbols of revived from Toyama City by air raids in World War II, lost little town, killed a lot of tragedy. Maintained in the Park, is a place of recreation and relaxation for citizens.

  • Beautiful castle and garden. The castle hosts museum of Toyama, but the castle is a rebuilt during the modern times.
  • Maly hrad, ale pekne opraveny. Uvnitr je muzeum.
  • The castle was rebuild after ww2. It's not the original castle but a small modern museum. The video visual on castle model very nice. The fence on the top of tower blocked all the view..
  • The area of Toyama Castle includes the rebuilt castle served for exhibition hall, an art museum of marvelous paintings, and also a splendid garden enclosed with a very nice pond. The pond makes me feel very relaxed and I stay there for quite some moments breathing the atmosphere of nature!
  • 施設は大きくありませんが、歴史にご興味があれば、ぜひお寄りください。
