[Kaiseki Pagoda]
This pagoda is 4.1 meters high, standing on the island in the center of Hisago-ike pond. Its six stone roofs are light brown with worm-eaten-like holes. There are two stories about where the pagoda comes from. One is that part of the thirteen-tiered roof stone pagoda made by the 3rd lord Toshitsune was moved from the garden in Kanazawa Castle. The other is that it was brought by Kato Kiyomasa from Korean Campaigns in the 16th century, and later Toyotomi Hideyoshi presented it to Lord Maeda Toshiie.
