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. Most of the castle's original structures were burnt down during a fire in 1759. Unfortunately, another fire struck Kanazawa Castle in 1881, after several structures had already been rebuilt. Now, Kanazawa Castle has been steadily reconstructed to match how it looked in the 1850s.
