Kanazawa Station
(Tsuzumi-mon Gate & Motenashi (Welcome) Dome)

Selected as one of the world's 14 most beautiful train stations. The Motenashi (Welcome) Dome was designed to represent an umbrella being held out to greet visitors, while Tsuzumi-mon Gate is meant to evoke the type of drum used in traditional performing arts. A great place for photos!

Saigawa Riv.

Saigawa River
(Mikage Ohashi Bridge)

Nicknamed "Otokogawa," or "Manly River," for its mighty flow. A lovely place for a breather, to enjoy the beautiful view of the river and the mountains.

Naga-machi Buke Yashiki District

Once the homes of the feudal lord's retainers, and even today still in use by the people of Kanazawa. The old earthen walls, narrow stone-paved roads, and irrigation channels have a charming old-fashioned feel.

Built in 1873, and dedicated to both Maeda Toshiie (the feudal lord who founded the Kaga Domain, where Kanazawa is now located) and his wife, Omatsu no Kata. Walkers and joggers are welcome to climb the stairs and pass through the shrine grounds.
