The home of the Maeda Family, who ruled the Kaga Clan (present day Ishikawa and Toyama areas) for more than 280 years. Despite the original castle being destroyed by war, the other fortress buildings such as the Ishikawamon Gate and Sanjikken Nagaya warehouse were reconstructed repeatedly and make the castle an important cultural property. Millions of tourists come to visit every year to see the castle’s traditional architecture and beautiful designs. Some stone walls in the castle’s architecture are more than 400 years old.
