  • There were souvenir shops, restaurants, and various shops in the station building, and there were a lot of customers. I was so lost in shopping. The main gate in front of the station building is a masterpiece.

  • The gate of Kanazawa Station of the modern design is very beautiful not to mention daytime but also the light-up at night! I recommend going to the night by all means.

  • Hard not to be impressed for really nice details for a station. The fountain that writes the time and the name of the place, the well-groomed planters, and then the entrance, which already by day is beautiful, but which in the evening becomes even more
