Takaoka Kojyo Park高岡古城公園

Event

Takaoka Kojyo Park was created on the site of the former Takaoka Castle, which was built by Maeda Toshinaga, the second generation of the Maeda family to rule the Kaga domain. The Park contains a shrine, zoo, museum, sports center, etc. The site of the old castle has been designated a National Historic Site, and the Park is also a famous place for viewing cherry blossom, which has been included in the list of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots. From early April through into mid-April, around 1,800 cherry trees belonging to 18 different varieties (including Yoshino, Koshino-higan and hill cherry) are in bloom in the Park; a “Takaoka Cherry Blossom Festival” is held during this period, with food-stalls and with paper lanterns to illuminate the cherry trees, making this a great place for evening cherry blossom viewing. Toilets, shops, and free parking available. The nearest station is Takaoka Station.

          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.
