Kairaku-en and Koraku-en are the other two.

If you are in Kanazawa and like curry & rice there is a great restaurant called Hot House . By all means visit that place. It looks like they have two restaurants there now.

Also Noto peninsula [能登半島 noto hantou ] is a very beautiful driving spot. You can see on the map below how the peninsula extends into the sea. You can also see real Japanese graffiti!

This picture is a place called 千枚田 sen mai da which means "1000 rice fields." And if you look at the picture you can see they weren't kidding. actually there are much more than 1000!

小松 Komatsu has the largest airport in Ishikawa.
