Ishikawa Four High School Memorial Cultural Exchange Center

The Ishikawa Four High School Memorial Cultural Exchange Center, located in the Ishikawa Four High School Memorial Park, is a modern red brick building that was formerly the school building of the former Four High School (called "Shiko").

In addition to exhibits that convey the history and traditions of Shiko, the museum is composed of the Ishikawa Shiko Memorial Hall, a multi-purpose classroom of the former Shiko, and the Ishikawa Museum of Modern Literature, which exhibits materials of literary figures associated with Ishikawa Prefecture.

The museum was reborn in April 2008 as a new "cultural space for learning and interaction" in the Kenrokuen Cultural Forest around Kenrokuen Garden.


Retro Museum Shop "GATE4": The former gatehouse located near the main entrance has been reborn as a museum store. Inside the store, which has been restored to its original appearance, you will find original goods related to Shiko and retro-designed items that evoke the culture and atmosphere of the Meiji and Taisho periods.

Business hours: 9:00 - 17:00 Closed: Year-end and New Year holidays, and holidays of the Ishikawa Shiko Memorial Cultural Exchange Center


Retro Costume Experience Room "Retrism": A room in the main building of Shiko has been renovated and a rental costume store with a Meiji-Taisho Romantic theme will be open from September 30, 2023. How about experiencing a different kind of kimono experience with authentic retro kimono and hakama styles in the heart of Kanazawa, a city with a concentration of green natural spaces and historical buildings?

Business hours: 9:00-17:00 Closed: Wednesdays, year-end and New Year holidays, and holidays of the Ishikawa Shiko Memorial Cultural Exchange Center
