Tera-machi Temple Area

One of the Three Temple Districts of Kanazawa

The Maeda family, who ruled the Kaga Domain (the present Ishikawa and Toyama areas) in feudal times, gathered temples in three areas when the family built the castle town. Approximately 70 temples are located close together in the Tera-machi Temple Area.

Comparatively big temples are located in line along the main street, and the view of the black roof tiles and mud walls of the temples and the big trees in the precincts is a scene suitable to the name of Tera-machi (literary means "temple town"). The back street is dotted with small temples, where you can enjoy a quiet walk.
