  • It was pretty clean Toyama Castle at night and during the day I've had. Clean and lit up, it was clean. I'm feeling a mysterious night.

  • 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。
