Kami Tokikunike Old Residence時国家(本家 上時国家)
The Heike Family who were defeated by Genji in the Battle of Danno-ura—The descendants of the younger brother in law of Taira no Kiyomori, Tokitada who was exiled to Noto, became wealthy farmers serving as imperial village officials; the “Tokikuni-ke” is the currently existing wooden house built by the 21st-generation family head. It seems to be the residence of a village official as the building is structured so that the section used for personal use is partitioned from the section used for official business; articles such as official business articles and large junk supplies are on display in the room used for personal use. In addition, Kamakura style strolling pond garden is designed in a strong style which skillfully adopts the natural topography, and it has been designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty of Japan.

Ishikawa Main 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.
