For a peaceful day out spent walking along the waterfront, head to this park located in Toyama City. The wide open green spaces make for some perfect picnic spots, which is why you’ll usually see a lot of locals descend upon here during cherry blossom season.

The park is located by the side of the Fugan Canal, a local landmark which was built in the first half of the 20th century to prevent flooding from the river. The park was established in the 80s as part of a redevelopment effort, and is now one of the nicest green spots in the city.

From here, you can head out on canal cruises down to the Nakajima Lock water elevator, and the historic Iwase district of the city. If you feel in the mood for a coffee, the park also houses an ultra-stylish Starbucks building, with giant windows looking out over the water.

Those visiting during summer should also check out the firework displays held here. This Japanese summertime tradition is a great way to spend the evening, with your mat spread out on the grass and a glass or two of sake in hand.
