Seisonkaku Villa, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • They do have a nice collection of antiquities but almost no description in English. What is the point of looking at beautifully craft objects if you have no idea of what they were used for. This is definitly not worth a 1000 ¥.

  • A stunning building! In my opinion a mußt See in Kanazawa.

  • Amazing traditional mansion (villa) from 1863 of Kaga lord Maeda.

  • Nice villa, reminding me of some of the nicest temples of Kyoto. However, what really sets it apart is the coloring of the 2F. Sadly, the gardens are not wortg mentioning. The price is steep, and I wouldn't call it a must-see.

  • 加賀藩主、前田家齊廣が、奥様のために建て、息子の齊泰が、母のためにさらに、装飾を施した屋敷。新幹線のデザイナーがこの屋敷の群青の間にヒントを受け、色遣いを決めています。また、恩田陸の2005年小説「ユージニア」(金沢で起こった大量毒殺事件)にもこの成巽閣が絡んできます。恩田陸は、取材ノートの中で、何度も金沢に行き、そのたびに兼六園と成巽閣には寄っている、成巽閣は、部屋も色も何もかもが奇矯(ききょう)で、気持ちが悪いと書いています。小説の中では、成巽閣の静謐さと潔い空間に主人公が、恐怖を感じます。
