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.

  • 巽御殿(現在の成巽閣)が造営されたのは1863年。明治の足音が聞こえる幕末です。 近代化間近の時代です。西洋からの珍しく高価な材料を使い、加賀藩藩主 前田齊泰が母親である眞龍院のために作った隠居所は贅を尽くしています。 高価な顔料を使った群青の間。当時の日本ではあり得ない色の和室です。 私は釘隠しの細工に目を奪われました。何気ない小さなものにまで意匠をこらしてあります。 加賀藩御細工所として培ってきた技術と材料を惜しみなく、ふんだんに使ったのでしょう。 其処彼処に百万石が見え隠れする場所です。 でも、隠居所の庭が兼六園。これが一番贅沢かも知れません。 因みに、外側の道路に面した海鼠壁が立派な門扉は、薬師丸ひろ子さんが高倉健さんと共演した映画デビュー作「野性の証明(1978)」で使われていました。今では三丁目の夕日シリーズなどで、すっかり母親役が似合っている薬師丸ひろ子さんですが、40年前の初々しい演技が記憶に残っています。 ただし、地元(東北の架空の都市という設定)の三國連太郎さんが扮する悪徳実業家の豪邸の門扉という使われ方で、黒塗りの外車が入って行くシーンでした。眞龍院が知ったら怒るかも知れません。
