Ishikawa Prefecture lies on the west coast of Japan\’s main island, a part of Hokuriku in the larger Chubu region. It is best-known perhaps for its capital city of Kanazawa, an old castle town rich in history. The present Kanazawa Castle Park has been itself the site of the Maeda\’s family castle, since Toshiie Maeda first entered the castle in 1583 and basic fortifications began. In 1881 all the castle walls apart from Ishikawa-mon Gate, were destroyed by fire. Finally, over period of 3 years, three structures Hishi-yagura, Gojukken-nagaya, and Hashizume-mon Tsuzuki-yagura were restored in 2001. They are the largest scale wooden castle structures built since the Meiji Period (1868 – 1912) in Japan.

Opening hours:
365 days a year: 7 am to 6 pm (8 am to 5 pm from Oct. 16 to end of Feb.)

New Toyota Yaris HSD Concept

New Toyota Yaris HSD Concept

Share/Bookmark

Toyota revealed a range of new models at the 2011 Geneva motor show, including full hybrid Yaris HSD concept. Yaris HSD is a typical city car, with an emphasis on low fuel consumption and low emissions. Like all other hybrid models of Japanese brands, the Yaris will be able to run solely on electricity. Roof of concept is covered with solar panels, which could improve the performance of the hybrid system. The independent panels power the air conditioning system in the concept. Design is almost identical with the serial model. While the exterior design of the European version will be completely identical with the Japanese, the interior will be diametrically different. We expect hybrid version of yaris in market in the second half of 2012.
