Fugan canal boat cruise and ex-shipowner's street, and Toyama castle tour.


Fugan canal was constructed in 1935. The canal contributed to the industrialization of Toyama city. It has been preserved as precious water space and for sightseeing purpose since the year 1985, on its 5 km long, with the Nakajima Lock in the middle. The Lock is the only one in Japan, which elevates a passing boat 2. 5 meter high to ajust the difference of water level. The Lock was designated as a national important cultural property in 1998.
