Located on the east side of the remains of Kanazawa Castle, the Ishikawa-mon Gate was so named as it faces Ishikawa-gun county. It has been designated an important cultural asset.
Burned down during the great fire of 1759, it was rebuilt by the 11th Lord Harunaga. After repairs and renovations over the years after that, it has arrived at its current appearance. Surrounded by verdant nature, this very beautiful spot has a stately presence that is befitting the vast land holdings the castle lords possessed and is magical when lit up at night.
