This is one of the top sights in Kanazawa. The fortress is impressive and gives you a glimpse of the Japanese wood building technique.
The park surrounding the castle is very nice. I appreciated the shadow protecting us from the July sun and that some...More
We were there in the evening when it was lighted up. We only walked around the castle grounds and did not go in. The grounds were big and grand and the lighting played a role in making the castle look attractive. To me, this is...More
Kanazawa castle charms by its elegant wide lines built over vast grounds; first sight from square makes one think this would be a good Lego build. The inside is spartan as typical for Japanese interiors, and just worth visit to peer outside fortress windows and...More
The Kanazawa Castle is located across the street from the Kenrokuen Garden, and is historically significant. It's worth an hour walk around if you are visiting the Garden, but since there is limited access to interiors, it's not a must-see.
Able to enter and view the beautiful timber and take photos. Is accessible by lift for disabled persons.
Very reasonable fee includes access to the stunning gardens across the street. Many clean Toilets in all areas. Great for Photos

Entering the Kanazawa Castle Park occupying large area on the outskirt is free of charge. To enter the Hishiyagure (diamond-shaped turret), Gojikken Nagoya (long warehouse) and the Tsuzuki Yagura (turret protecting the nearby gate) will have a charge of Yen 310 per adult but elderly over 65 is free of charge. Personally i prefer stroll around the park and take photos around particularly during sakura and momiji period.
