  • 紀念金澤第一代藩主前田利家和夫人松的神社,進入神社的塔樓是含有的和洋設計,飾有彩色玻璃,風格獨特。逛完神社從後門過馬路,進入金澤公園玉泉園,覺得是不錯的路線。 
  • It is a shrine was built in the Meiji era located in the center of Kanazawa. It seems to Toshiie shrine before the founder of the Kaga clan. Mikado-style construction, it is designated nationally famous. The locals seemed popular shrine. And come in sets and 6 garden, Kanazawa Castle Park is recommended.

  • First there is a tower at the entrance? Gate? It is nice! There's like a stained-glass window style, of as ideal, Western space were impressive. It is in a great location. 21st century from the Museum of fine arts can be reached on foot.

  • The gate is surely what makes this shrine truly special, probably unique. However, the shrine itself and the shrine grounds are also very nice.
  • Surprisingly, this shrine is bounded by some tall trees and an amazing pond that offer amazing scenic views. You would have a peaceful mind for viewing the beauty of nature after praying. This place is also a place of family gatherings as observed.
  • Beautiful and peaceful shrine. Don't miss the pond with bridges in the back.
  • The gate has kind of some European influence. A lot of details in Kanazawa also the same
  • Beautiful shrine, not as well kept as some of the others but there is a lot less tourists here and the water garden is a treat to enjoy, worth a look in if you are passing as there is no charge for looking around.
