In the center of the town is Kenrokuen, designated one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, along with Kairakuen in Mito, Ibaraki prefecture, and Korakuen in Okayama, Okayama prefecture. In wintertime, you can see the unique and beautiful scenery of yuki-tsuri, in which about 800 pine trees are supported by umbrella-like ropes to protect branches against the heavy snow. Across the road to the north, there is Kanazawa Castle Park. Ishikawa-mon Gate, Sanjukken-nagaya House and Hishi-yagura Tower are impressive remnants of olden times and well worth seeing. Kanazawa Castle Park and Kenrokuen are to be lit up during February 5th-7th and 11th-14th in 2010.
