    Toyama Pref. Toyamashi Furusawa 254
    The Toyama Municipal Family Park is surrounded by nature and rich verdure, and makes fun for the whole family with its focus on animals, mountain villages, and local community. Divided into three sections—an animal corner, a large lawn, a section with amusement park rides—it makes for a great time with nature or a barbeque. With many events such as the night zoo, you can interact with animals in a variety of ways, and see them in a more natural state. 10 minutes by car via Kosugi Interchange, a Hokuriku Expressway.

    Enjoy the lovely gardens! Have a BBQ - bring your own or be fully catered for! Great place for kids to safely play! Fun playgrounds!

Toyama Areas


Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
