Exhibition hall of craft art is very interesting. Museum next to the famous Kenroku-en park and close to the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art.

Although this center has a wide variety of high end products from the Ishikawa Prefecture, there are not many available for purchase. The museum display is interesting, but not one that begs a visit.

And the pastries are so incredibly delicious.... More
