Outline

This kindergarten is in the Shin Buddhism Otaniha Kanazawa Betsuin (Higashi Honganji Kanazawa Betsuin) in central Kanazawa. Higashi Betsuin boasts hundreds of years of history, and is linked to the city’s development. The grounds are within the main temple area, with the school building around it. Kanazawa stretches out around the school. The building is a one-story structure with long eaves covering the sides and an interior of earthen floors typical of traditional Japanese structures. This creates a space where the children can play even during Hokuriku winters. The play hall was designed to be opened to the community for events on neighboring streets. We hope that the children’s smiles will forge new relationships between Higashi Honganji Kanazawa Betsuin and Kanazawa.
