It was a nice place to visit and was in the centre of Toyama city. There were no entrance fees and it had a pleasant garden to stroll around.

Much smaller as compared to other castles in Japan, but the park was quiet and did not have many people. It has a nice garden good for photographs. Good place to chill, relax and reflection
