Fugan canal cruise

Built in the 1930s, this 5km/3mi-long canal links downtown Toyama to the port of Iwase on the bay. It was formerly used to transport wooden logs by timber rafting. Nakajima lock, built on the model of the Panama Canal, makes it possible to rise or descend some 2.5m/8ft. On arrival, we recommend strolling down the old high street of Iwase, lined with historic houses and shops.
