Kanazawa’s modern building “Bungeikan and Gallery Mita”.
Kanazawa: The area around Hashibacho is quite popular.
Speaking of Kanazawa, the area around this “Hashibacho” is quite popular and a lot of people gather there. There are teahouse districts in Higashi, Nishi, and Kazuemachi, which are sightseeing spots. I guess it’s an old boys’ playground, but it’s a street like a teahouse in Kyoto. Of course, just like in Kyoto, there is a geisha house and a training center. A sign is up on a small Japanese house. The townscape has been beautifully maintained and recreated. These days, they are all souvenir shops, but there are also restaurants. If you get off at the Hashiba-cho bus stop and walk towards Omi-cho, you will find “Kanazawa Literature Museum” and “Gallery Mita” along the intersection. It’s a retro looking building, so you can see him right away, but he’s standing in a nice way.
The Kanazawa Literature Museum is a place of origin for literary activities.
The Kanazawa Literary Museum is of course designated as a nationally registered tangible cultural property, and was established in 2005 as a center for literary activities, named after the many literary figures that Kanazawa has produced. On the day of the event, there was a signboard of Hiroyuki Itsuki, and it seems that the Kanazawa Itsuki Library is permanently installed on his second floor.
Gallery Mita is designated as a tangible cultural property
Gallery Mita is a two-story reinforced concrete building built in 1930 by the former Mita Shoten. The walls are covered with scratch tiles and the entrance is beautifully decorated. It’s nice to have a little twilight light. However, it feels like this dusk, and even though it was raining and cloudy that day, around 2 o’clock in Kanazawa feels like around 5 o’clock in the evening. Overall, it feels like it’s already evening even though it’s daytime. Perhaps because of that, the lights come on quickly, and he has a nice feeling with the lights on the buildings and buildings… What do you think?
