This tram is running from north of Toyama train station to IWASEHAMA beach. As it runs through residential area, it has been used as commuter train. If you are a visitor to Toyama city, maybe this is a good way to go to north part...More

We took the light rail from the north train station exit to the last stop. From there it's a 10 minute walk to a wide beach with soft sand and lots of tiny tiny shells. There are restrooms at the beach. You can also walk...More

I used the system to a free tour to seaside and also to get to the train station. Both were free for travelers outside of Japan and were very convenient.

A beautiful, compact rail line that takes you to the beach and port area. There are not really many touristic spots along the journey - at the end, you can get out and look around at the port and waterway promenade - but you get...More

There’re complimentary tickets (2 rides) for foreigners. We got the tickets from the hotel. I found it’s the best way to travel around the city.

First and foremost, remember to get the free pass for two rides from your hotel! Personally, would prefer the loop route ( there are a few different routes) as it will go round the city and back to where you first started. Great way to...More

Flat rate 200yen for adults. 100 yen for kids. It's a nice comfortable way to see the city, big windows for you to look through. Get in from the back and then pay when you exit the front.

This is a great way to get a different view of Toyama! The light rail winds closely between houses and parks, It provides and intimate view on Toyama life. It is a unique way to travel and explore and take in this lovely town!

You can get two half-price coupons per person from your hotel (we stayed at Toyoko Inn). The normal price is 200 yen. It is nice to have a light rail system (Centram and Portram) for a relatively small town (population 400,000). It comes every 15-20...More

It is a slow moving train, but very convenient to get around. It allows you to see the neighborhoods as well. Definitely worth a trip with the light rail.
