Utatsuyama + Around the Castle Run in Kanazawa

Yesterday late afternoon, I was lucky to be able to run in the beautiful city of Kanazawa.  Although the time was limited, I could visit some interesting sites.

First, I ran to Utatsuyama area, then came back into the city around the castle.

Asano River must be crossed to get to Utatsuyama.

The famous Iris Garden - must be beautiful in May.

Entrance to the Three Shrines.

The map showing them.

Atago Shrine - one of many that worships Atago Gongen.

Utatsu Shrine (left) and Toyokuni Shrine.

Close from the castle is Gokoku Shrine.
