  • Well worth a visit when In Kenrokuen Garden. A two story traditional house with some unusual finishes with many rooms opening to a lovely garden where the sound of running water cools on a sweltering ...  more »
  • I have visited Kanazawa several times, and kenrokuen has been in many times, so This time I went to Seitokaku in the back. It seems to be put from the Kenrokuen side, but you can park it at the free parking lot when turning to the back side. There is a room (between) with a variety of flora and fauna, and each one has a good idea. There is a rule that the wife of daimyo lives in Edo, but it is not because of moving to the head of the country by husband's hiding and the death. The wives who came from the public family married to Kyoto → Edo, and even in maeda family masamuro, Kanazawa has never been. However, because there is a problem of the bride-in-law, it is more harmonious to have you move to Kanazawa than to put it in Edo. However, there would be no relatives in Kanazawa, and I imagined that my son who had succeeded him had a luxury house in Kanazawa and moved to 、、、.

  • The house has some beautiful details. There were two we almost missed. The turtle’s painted on the wainscoting are faded. We are glad we asked where they were. Second, in the raised room where she received visitors, lean over and check out the ceiling. It has beautiful wood panels. You’re going to miss it if you just look at the room and it’s contents. They have seasonal displays. We saw the dolls. We were told grandparents gave dolls to celebrate the birth of little girls. The dolls were handed down over the generations. I wish we saw some of the wardrobe items, dolls just aren’t my thing. It is also interesting to compare this house to the Nomura samurai house a short distance away. I recommend seeing these two back to back. You’ll be amazed at the difference in aristocracy and samurai.
  • This is not to be missed in Kenrokuen, even though it requires 700 yen as the admission. The two floor building is a canonical example of Traditional Japanese residence of noble families. Unfortunately taking photos is not allowed inside. It is really beautiful.
