    Ishikawa Kaga-shi Daishoji
    Rows of cherry trees line a one-kilometer-long stretch of the Kumasaka River, a distributary of the Daishoji River. The sight of around200 trees in bloom, which usually occurs in early April, heralds the coming of spring to the Daishoji area. The trees were planted to commemorate repair work conducted along the river after a great fire in the early Showa period, and when they flower on either side, they create a tunnel of pale pink blossoms. During the flowering season, the Kumasakagawa Yozakura Night Market, one of the biggest events of the Daishoji area, is held – food and drink is sold and a variety of events are conducted. Paper lanterns provide illumination for the market, creating a gentle atmosphere amidst which visitors can take in the flowers.

    Ishikawa Hosu-gun Anamizumachi Sobuku
    "This station is located on the Noto Railway Nanao Line, which connects Wakura Onsen and Anamizu. The compact, old-fashioned station building sports a weather vane on its roof, and its wooden walls are painted pink and white. Dozens of Yoshino cherries grow along the station platforms, and because of the beautiful scenery they create in spring when the flowers are in bloom, the station is nicknamed ""Noto Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Station."" In 1999, the station was chosen as one of the 100 Train Stations in the Chubu region. A cherry blossom festival is also held at the station when the trees are in bloom."

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.
