Matsukawa River Cruises

See the beautiful seasonal landscapes from the water!

  • There’s no better way to see the cherry blossoms than from a boat bobbing along on the water!

See a tunnel of gorgeous cherry blossoms in spring, vibrant new greenery in summer or brightly coloured leaves in autumn. The beautiful landscapes of Toyama look completely different from the water, and the sunset makes the scenery around the river look even more magical. Drifting along with the current of the river will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
