Toyama Castle Park

Matsukawa River, around a ten-minute walk from Toyama Station.

It was rainy the day I went, but the best time to visit would have been early April anyway, when the cherry blossoms bloom.

Toyama Castle, which I did not enter. It's said to have been built in the mid-16th century. The area surrounding the castle is Toyama Castle Park, and includes a library and small art museum.


It may take a bit longer than Tokyo for the cherry blossoms to bloom, but it seems there is no such delay for wisteria. In fact, during this time of the year, there doesn't seem to be much difference in temperature between Toyama and Tokyo.
