Oyama Jinja Shrine

The "Shinmon" gate, which shows the Guillaman, is stunningly beautiful!

The shrine that enshrines Maeda Toshiie was moved to the present location in 1873. The main gate is a peculiar mix of traditional Japanese, Chinese, and European religious architectural elements. This gate, which was designated as Japan's important cultural assets, was completed in 1875.

One of the highlights of Oyama Shrine is the garden in round-the-pond style with an artificial island and bridge in the images of old musical instruments, such as the biwa (Japanese short-necked fretted lute).

It is illuminated from after sunset until 22:00 at night, and the way it floats in the light creates a fantastic atmosphere. Located between Kenrokuen Garden and Kanazawa Castle and the Nagamachi District and downtown area, it is an easy stopover during sightseeing.
