Welcome to the Matsukawa River Cruises in Toyama City!!


Our River Cruises

We have offered these cruises on the Matsu river since 1988, here in the center of Toyama City.
This Matsu river is one of the 100 cherry blossom beauty spots in Japan.
It has 500 cherry trees on the riverbanks.
Not only in cherry blossom season but also throughout the year (except in winter), you can absolutely enjoy the amazing scenery from the boats.
Verdure, sunlight reflected on the water, fishes in the river, blue herons, kingfishers,
Sounds of water flowing, autumn leaves,etc
Very lovely nature welcomes you !!!
During the cruises,with rich nature you can’t believe that you are in a downtown.
