Kanazawa Jinja Shrine

The shrine deeply connected with the Maeda family, which ruled Kanazawa during the Edo era

Kanazawa Jinja Shrine is often missed on foreign visitors’ itineraries, but it is a charming place with a rich and intriguing history. The shrine was built in 1794 by the 11th Maeda lord to protect Kenrokuen Garden and is dedicated to the ancestors of the Maeda family. It was only in 1874, that Kenrokuen Garden became open to the public. The shrine consists of a beautiful, red building and many torii gates can be seen about the grounds.
