  • There were souvenir shops, restaurants, and various shops in the station building, and there were a lot of customers. I was so lost in shopping. The main gate in front of the station building is a masterpiece.

  • The gate of Kanazawa Station of the modern design is very beautiful not to mention daytime but also the light-up at night! I recommend going to the night by all means.
