Takaoka Kojo Park高岡古城公園

Park / Green Space

This natural park located a 15-minute drive from the Noetsu Expressway's Takaoka Interchange was opened in 1875 on the site of Takaoka Castle, originally built by Maeda Toshinaga. The park, surrounded by three moats that have remained almost untouched since the castle was built, is one of Japan's few moated parks. The large 210,000 square-meter park houses a number of facilities including Imizu-jinja Shrine, a zoo, a museum, a gymnasium, and more. The park is home to many examples of cherry blossoms, Japanese maples, Japanese zelkovas, pine trees, and other species. It has also been selected as one of Japan's best 100 cherry blossoms viewing spots and is the main venue for the Takaoka Manyo Festival.

          Toyama Main Areas

          around-area-map

          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.
