This is worth visiting, suspect it gets overlooked with the famous gardens on its door steps. But it is a lovely example of its type. It also has a excellent information booth there where English is spoken.
Japan's castles have a difficult fate. Few of them have survived to this day at least in partial form. What we see is only reconstruction. Castles Osaka, Matsumoto burned down, castles Hiroshima and Nagoya completely destroyed by American bombers. Kanazawa castle, unfortunately, is no exception....More

Entering the Kanazawa Castle Park occupying large area on the outskirt is free of charge. To enter the Hishiyagure (diamond-shaped turret), Gojikken Nagoya (long warehouse) and the Tsuzuki Yagura (turret protecting the nearby gate) will have a charge of Yen 310 per adult but elderly over 65 is free of charge. Personally i prefer stroll around the park and take photos around particularly during sakura and momiji period.
