Kanazawa Castle

Kanazawa castle is located right next to Kenrokuen Garden in the center of the city of Kanazawa. It was built by the Maeda clan at the end of the “sengoku” era (around 1580) and is one of the largest castles in Japan by useful surface.

To see it covered in heavy snow, with barely nobody visiting it and just hearing the caws of a flock of crows was a fabulous experience.

    It’s called a murder of crows, not a flock. Awesome pictures though

    Wow, I loved this castle, I visited it one time when my friend got married in Kanawaza. I wrote about it here http://alwaysrestlessfeet.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/kanazawa-castle/ but I love the snow and the crows! How awesome!
