Nodayama Cemetery

Nodayama is a hilly area located in the southeast part of the city of Kanazawa. The elder brother of Lord Maeda Toshiie, founder of the Kaga Domain, was buried here at the end of the 16th century. After that, the graves of the family for generations including Maeda Toshiie were made around the summit, and their vassals and townspeople's graves were made in the lower part. Now, the area is a large cemetery that has approximately 50,000 gravestones.

A large number of people visit the cemetery during the Bon Festival (around July 15 or August 15) and equinoctial weeks (around March 20 and September 23) every year.
