Hirosaka Annex

Hirosaka Annex

The Hirosaka Annex was originally built in 1922 as housing for the director general of the Ninth Division of the Imperial Japanese Army. After the war, it was used to house American military officers, as the Kanazawa Family Court, as the prefectural children’s center, as a bird sanctuary, and as a resting area. Even today, the building’s entrance still retains its old-fashioned style.

In 2008, the Japanese-style rooms and other parts of the building were renovated, and new exhibition equipment and features were installed, for the building’s reopening as the Hirosaka Annex of the Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art. In 2016, it underwent construction work for earthquake-proofing, and a new guidance room was built for the relocated Conservation and Restoration Studio of Cultural Properties, as part of the combined renovation work for the Hirosaka Annex and the adjacent Studio.
