    Ishikawa Kanazawa-shi Suehiromachi Utatsuyama Park Uchi
    An observatory situated 141 meters above sea level in Utatsuyama Park. From here, visitors can get a sweeping view of the homes of Kanazawa, roofed with shining black tiles; the Sea of Japan; and the Hakusan Mountains. At night, visitors can enjoy a nightscape dominated by the high rise hotels in front of Kanazawa Station, but be sure to also check out the night view from the Miharashidai observatory in the park, as well.

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.
