Seisonkaku Villa - Review
This particular villa was built by the 13th lord of Maeda family for his mother and till now it has aced the test of time. A masterpiece of architecture, the ceilings are carved neatly with flowers and birds, hence enhancing the villa’s beauty. The guest chamber in the villa is also worth seeing. In addition to this, there are exhibits dating back to the ancient times which are displayed here. The most prominent ones being the old furniture and dolls for the Japanese Girls’ Festival.

Seisonkaku Villa, Kanazawa-shi Reviews
The house has some beautiful details. There were two we almost missed. The turtle’s painted on the wainscoting are faded. We are glad we asked where they were. Second, in the raised room where she received visitors, lean over and check out the ceiling. It has beautiful wood panels. You’re going to miss it if you just look at the room and it’s contents. They have seasonal displays. We saw the dolls. We were told grandparents gave dolls to celebrate the birth of little girls. The dolls were handed down over the generations. I wish we saw some of the wardrobe items, dolls just aren’t my thing. It is also interesting to compare this house to the Nomura samurai house a short distance away. I recommend seeing these two back to back. You’ll be amazed at the difference in aristocracy and samurai.
This is not to be missed in Kenrokuen, even though it requires 700 yen as the admission. The two floor building is a canonical example of Traditional Japanese residence of noble families. Unfortunately taking photos is not allowed inside. It is really beautiful.
Go there If you want to see an old and beautiful japanese house.
Very cool old building, worth the trip.
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 ¥.
