1Kibagata Koen Park
Kibagata Koen Park, together with Shibayama Lagoon and Imae Lagoon called the "three lakes of Kaga," is the sole park left in its natural state. Maintaining harmony with the surrounding rural landscape, the riverside scenery in particular has been chosen as one of the "100 Nature Views of Ishikawa." The wild birds and aquatic vegetation that inhabit the surroundings of the lagoon have been left untouched, and the area is well-known for bird watching, walking, and canoeing.
Kakusenkei Gorge, which can be found in Ishikawa prefecture, is an extended gorge which runs through the Daishoji River. With a number of beautiful old bridges, such as the Kurotani bridge or the Korogi bridge, it certainly has a beautiful aesthetic. Just as memorable however is the Kakusenkei Kawadoko resting spot where you can procure high quality Japanese sweets, but note that it is only open through the months of April to October. Aside from its natural beauty, history fans will also find something to appreciate from the shrine commemorating the renowned ancient Japanese poet, Matsuo Basho.
3Yamanaka Onsen Kakusenkei Kawadoko
The Kakusenkei Gorge is known for its beauty, and between April and November, "kawadoko" are installed here. Kawadoko are elegant tatami mat seating areas that jut out over the flowing river. Visitors can spend some time here relaxing and listening to the lilt of the murmuring stream.
Additionally, if you taste the special sweetness of dishes produced by Japanese chef Michiba Rokusaburo, originally from Yamanaka, you'll be immersed in even further in a feeling of refinement. Kawadoko bento lunch boxes can also be purchased for take out. A wide variety of these lunch boxes are prepared every day, and no matter which you choose it's sure to lift your spirits.
This is a great place to enjoy the nature of Yamanaka while spending time with people important to you.
4Ayatori Hashi Bridge
Ayatori Hashi Bridge is a 94.7 meter long bridge located in the Yamanaka Onsen hot spring resort area of Ishikawa Prefecture. This stunning bridge overlooks the Daishoji River. Ayatori Hashi Bridge is famous for its faded red painted beams and winding and turning pattern that looks like an S shape from below. The unique architectural design houses creates an interesting ambiance with the picturesque scenery all around it. From the bridge, you can catch a glimpse of the Kakusenkei Gorge and its lush greenery and rushing water which makes it a popular destination among all tourists. From spring to autumn the bridge and nearby Sakura Koen Park are illuminated in the evening, which makes for a mysterious atmosphere - the installation is called the Kakusenkei Light.
