Kuro-mon gate

This used to be called ”the Nishicho-guchi-mon gate”, and was the front gate when Kanazawa Mido, a religious school, was located here. It remained as the front gate while Sakuma Morimasa occupied the castle, but when the Maeda Family became the castle owners, the front gate moved to the Osaka-mon gate. Later, in the Meiji period, the Nishicho-guchi-mon gate was re-named the Kuro-mon gate.
