    Ishikawa Wajima-shi Machinomachi Nishitokikuni 2-1
    "An old thatch roof estate located 20 kilometers east of downtown Wajima City along National Route 249. After the Genpei war, a portion of the defeated Taira clan ended up in Noto and became the Tokikuni family before splitting into two branches. Because this is the residence of a branch family, it is also known as the ""Shimo-Tokikunike"" or ""Lower Tokikuni Residence."" A wooden, hiraya-style single-story residence, the magnificent central pillar and huge beams visible in the large, 132 square meter doma earthen floored room are truly a sight to behold. The residence as well as its adjoining 6,620 square meter Japanese strolling garden have collectively been designated an Important Cultural Property. The garden's Kirishima azalea come into bloom in early May; the Noto Antoku Tenno-sha shrine is also a sacred ""power spot""."

Ishikawa Areas


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.
