Located a short distance from the train station, the observatory is worth a quick visit. It's free and you get a view of the snow capped mountains in distance

This is the best time to view the mountain. It is really stunning a landscape worth taking picture. The elongated mountain with blue sky background and snow on top is what you should be expecting.

This tower is located in the Toyama city office building which is only a short walk from Toyama Castle. Entry is free and the view of the city and distant mountains is great. Worth a visit.

Just a block away from the castle park was a surprisingly cool stop at the Toyama City Hall. A small observation deck on the 10th floor offered some great views of the city and the Japanese Alps.

Gives you a 360 view of the city, not too close to the Alps though. It was foggy in the horizon when I was there ): The City Office looks rather worn-out, so you might not think that's the building. Go to through the main...More

It offers the best view of Mt. Tateyama which is part of Japan Alps as well as the whole Toyama city itself. You can enter here even on weekends. If you are superstitious then you may feel ominous as flying crows are abundant in the...More
