  • 如果你在富山的時間不多有個地方是必遊的那就是富山城,這是我第一次來富山,由於下午去了冰見,所以只能安排晚上到此一遊. 雖然晚上無法入內參觀但我覺得來這里也不錯,能看打燈光的富山城,不仔細看感覺有點神似金澤城郭,從富山駅步行過來大約30分鐘左右,路線不算很難走. 晚上的富山市並不熱閙,本身也算是挺冷清的城市,但實際上我覺得吃過晚餐再來這里看看倒是一個不錯的夜遊方式,除了散步消化外還多了一個景點能觀光...  more »

  • 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。
