Daishoji

Once a castle residence for the southern branch of the mighty and prosperous Kaga clan, the town keeps alive the atmosphere of ancient Japan. The magnificent cherry trees along the meandering banks of the river from whom the town owes its name, the nostalgic songs of the boatmen sailing down, the temples and architecture of the houses remaining out of a bygone era, as well as the majesty of Mount Hakusan commanding the plain; everything here reminds us of the aristocratic past of Daishoji.
