Oyama Shrine (R_, Oyama Jinja) is dedicated to Maeda Toshiie, the first lord of the powerful, local Maeda Clan. The shrine was constructed in 1599 by Toshiie's successor, Maeda Toshinaga on Mount Utatsu. It was later moved to its present location.

Oyama Shrine is known for its unusual gate, which was designed by a Dutch architect, using elements of European and Asian religious themes. While the first story displays a mixture of Japanese and Chinese influence, the upper stories once served as a lighthouse and feature a Dutch style, stained glass window.

The gate originally guarded the entrance to the palace of Kanazawa Castle, and was only later moved to Oyama Shrine. On the shrine grounds stands a statue of Lord Toshiie. There is also a nice strolling garden with ponds and bridges, designed to resemble harps and lutes.

Getting there and around

Oyama Shrine is located a short walk from either Minami-cho or Korinbo bus stop, which can be reached in about ten minutes and for 200 yen by frequently departing buses from Kanazawa Station (East Exit). Among the buses are also 1-3 JR buses per hour (covered by the Japan Rail Pass) and the Kanazawa Loop Bus.
