About this sight

The residence of Moriatsu Ikarashi once stood here, where Emperor Meiji, who ruled Japan from 1868 to 1912, is said to have stayed while traveling to the Hokuriku region. A special building was erected for this purpose in the residence's inner courtyard. Unfortunately, a great fire that spread all across town destroyed the structure in 1912.
