Landmarks of Times Past

Daishoji was once a thriving castle town and part of the southern branch of the Kaga clan (today’s Kanazawa). The lords erected a villa, Choryutei, on the grounds of what is now Enuma Shrine. It served as a retreat and a rest place during fishing trips. Here, MAEDA Toshiharu, the first Daishoji lord and Sugawara no Michizane, the deity of study, is enshrined. The completely preserved and highly refined building of Choryutei is designated as an Important National Cultural Property. The shrine’s chisen-kaiyushiki is a garden built to be enjoyed and experienced, with a path that guides you around a small pond.
