"An unusual Buddhist temple built on Shibayama Lagoon in the Katayamazu Onsen hot spring village. Connected to the shore by a bridge, the temple is also known by its nickname, the ""Ukiuki Benten"" (""Floating Benten Temple""). Legend has it that when a huge serpent was laying waste to the lakes of Katayamazu, Bhaisajyaguru sent the goddess Benten to suppress it, and in connection with this story, the temple is dedicated to the dragon king and Benten. A large fountain system has been built out on the lack behind the temple; the fountain, along with the bridge and temple, are lit up at night, creating a magical atmosphere."

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.
