The gorgeous accoutrements of the building itself are also a must-see, including pillars lacquered with silver and gold in the tradition of Yamanaka-lacquer, and the lattice door-style walls. The facility also has a tourist information center, coin lockers, and shop, making it a great place to stop by while exploring the area as well.

    Ishikawa Kanazawa-shi Ishibiki 4-17-1

    石川厚生年金会館の時から、良く利用しています。学生の頃は、アマチュアバンド数組でライブもやりました。今回はスキマスイッチのライブ、正月気分で盛り上がりました。客席がすり鉢状になっているので、どの席でも前の人が邪魔にならず、見やすいし、音響も悪くないです。大好きなホールの一つです。

Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
