Review of Shogawa Aqua Memorial Park

Reviewed:2016/04/28 Romantic place
Nice garden next to the river Showa. Typical Japanese. Night light in the evening. Information about the dam.
Reviewed:2019/08/14 お散歩にちょうど良い公園
割り箸でつくった橋、鯉のいる池、柚子ソフトや工芸品の店などがあります。庄川は鮎が有名なので、訪れた際は鮎料理を堪能したら良いでしょう。
Reviewed:2019/06/12 寂れていますが、隣のダムがいいです
寂れた感じであまり見るものはありません。真ん中で噴水と一緒にまわるオブジェが変わっています。割り箸でできた橋がありましたが、橋というより渡みたいなものでした。それより、すぐ隣のダムがいいです。ダムの横に橋があって、対岸まで渡れます。橋の真ん中あたりでみる景色は、湖面に写ってキレイでした。

          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.
