Centrally located and within walking distance of other attractions like the Glassworks Museum, take the tram on Loop 3 from Toyama Station. Or just walk from Toyama Station. The park is about 10 minutes away.

Tumultuous past, peaceful present

Over its long and troubled history, Toyama Castle has been destroyed and reconstructed numerous times. The current building, a concrete reconstruction, dates from 1954 and faithfully reproduces the external appearance of the historic keep. The castle interior now serves as a museum space, hosting both an exhibit on local history and items from the art collection of Sato Sukekuro.

When to go

Toyama Castle is open year-round except for the two-day period from Dec. 31 to Jan. 1. Business hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is 210 yen to enter the castle keep and 310 yen to view the exhibits while you're there.
