SpotKanazawa Castle Park

The present Kanazawa Castle Park is itself the site of the Maeda's family castle and Gojukken Nagaya in the park was used as an arsenal of sorts storing arms and ammunition. More peaceful pursuits prevail nowadays as citizens enjoy jogging and walking in this large green park.

The magnificent Ishikawa-mon Gate is recognized as a nationally important cultural property and is to the east of the Castle Park. At night illuminated, it is well worth seeing.
