Seisonkaku成巽閣

4.0

Historical Monument

Seisonkaku is a retreat which Nariyasu Maeda, the 13th lord of Kaga Province, built for his mother, Shinryuin, in 1863. It is located next to Kenroku-en Garden, a famous tourist place in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The building has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property and its garden as a National Place of Scenic Beauty. The two-storey building with a shingle roof features the Shoin-zukuri architectural style on the first floor and the Sukiya-zukuri architectural style on the second floor. The luxurious interior decorations, such as the Shoin-no-ma with its impressive purple walls and pastel ultramarine ceiling, as well as the drawing room with a beautiful colored ranma openwork screen are particular must sees.

          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.
