  • I think Yosakoi Festival is a small castle. However, as a whole, such as Park around the Castle, moat and think with its beautiful castles. The laid back sitting on the grass, so good in.

  • 從富山站可以坐數站電車,到富山城公園,很方便,又可以利用機會試著富山的電車。 城外有一個小湖,可以湖邊走入城內,建議冬天去,下雪後的富山城比沒有下雪時美麗得多。城的面積不大,所以去到富山但時間逗留又不多的話,也絕對是一個推介的景點! 
  • Heavy snowfall overnight on weekdays for tourists who didn't. Go inside the castle entrance fee, but only near the walking free of charge.

  • 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。
