Kanazawa Castle is a partially-reconstructed castle located in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture. Up until the Meiji Restoration period in 1871, lords of the Maeda Clan occupied the castle. The castle building is part of the sprawling Kanazawa Castle Park, where you can also find the Kenrokuen Garden. In 2008, the castle was designated as a National Historic Site.
