Kanazawa Castle Park is a park on the castle’s ruins where Maeda Toshiie, a famous warlord of the Azuchi-Momoyama (1573-1603) period, lived. Due to repeated fires, the castle tower does not remain, but the beautiful restored gates and turrets can still be seen.
Admission to the park is free, but you need a combination ticket to enter the inside of the gates and turrets (except for some gates).
The entire castle has been extended, renovated, and restored several times, so stone walls from various periods remain, and the finely piled stone walls are famous.
The stonewalls are illuminated from sunset to 9 pm daily.
We recommend visiting this park with the neighboring Kenrokuen Garden.
