MOON GATE

Moon Gate

The Moon Gate was built in 2003 to coincide with the relocation of the Ishikawa Prefectural Office. The “tsuki” in Kuratsuki, where the prefectural office is located, means “moon,” — the design was intended to evoke this image. Shortly past the Moon Gate, you should soon be able to see Kanazawa Port in the distance.
