Matsukawa Cherry Blossom Viewing River Cruise

View the Cherry Blossom Tunnel from the Water

Matsukawa River runs through the centre of Toyama City. In the past, the river played an important role as the outer moat of Toyama Castle, as well as a trade route. Today, more than 500 cherry trees have been planted along the river, making it a renowned cherry blossom viewing spot that has been selected as one of the top 100 in Japan. The Matsukawa River cruise will take you through a tunnel of cherry blossoms and under seven different bridges. You can also enjoy the magical cherry blossoms lit up in the evening.
