Kitamaebune Ship Museum北前船の里資料館
"A museum which contains exhibits on ""kitamaebune,"" shipping vessels which plied the waters of the Sea of Japan from the mid-Edo period to the mid-Meiji period. The museum is housed in an estate which was built by a kitamaebune ship owner in 1876. The structure was built with the highest quality materials and its lacquered pillars and ceilings are still lustrous today. The museum's many exhibits include ema votive tablets decorated with ships used to pray for safe voyages, model ships given by ship builders to ship owners, sailing instruments, furniture used on the ships, and more. The 2,000 lacecap hydrangeas which grow in the inner courtyard come into stunning bloom from mid-June to early July."

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.
