Matsukawa River Cruises

Come take a relaxing cruise on a sightseeing boat along the Matsukawa River, which flows around Toyama Castle Ruin Park. The boat dock also features a teahouse, Matsukawa Chaya, which serves a variety of sweets. Passengers can enjoy the seasonal views while listening to the commentary from the boatman during the approximately 30-minute cruise. During the spring, the 460 cherry blossom tree that line both banks of the river come into full bloom, earning Toyama Castle a spot on Japan's best 100 places to view cherry blossoms. The castle, which served as the model for a song composed by composer Rentaro Taki, is also a place full of historic atmosphere.
