Kanazawa Castle 金沢城 – Located beside the Kenrokuen Garden

The visit to Kanazawa Castle wasn’t intentional. We had only wanted to see the fame Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa instead. But since it was just nearby, we decided to go see it and walk around the castle grounds.

其实我们并没有特别想造访金沢城。只是既然都到了兼六園,城堡也在附近,我们就决定去看看它,然后在城堡前的地面上散步。

The castle park is a big area that is accessible from many sides, with the more popular main entrance facing the Kenrokuen through the Ishikawa-mon Gate, which we used.

Here is a panoramic view of the area. It was quite empty and not really interesting. We heard there could be some upgrading going on to develop the grounds.

金沢城堡可从多方位到达,最受欢迎的是使用连接到兼六園的石川门。

这是城前花园的全景。其实并没有花,非常空荡,并不是很有趣。我们听说可能会进行一些升级以发展。

Unlike other more famous castle in Japan, the Kanazawa main castle is small, long and short, the keeps and turrets are therefore more photogenic.

与日本其他比较着名的城堡不同,金泽的主城堡长而矮,因此炮塔便显得更为上镜。

We spent not more than 30 minutes walking around the castle. One last wefie before going back to Kanazawa for the night.

我们在城堡周围走了不到30分钟。自拍后便离开了。

You may want to visit Kanazawa Castle if you are going to the Kenrokuen Garden (One of top 3 garden in Japan), just to cross out this off your bucket list.

如果你计划到兼六園(日本三大花园之一),那么你可能可以凑空参观金沢城。没时间的话就算了,可以错过。
