The shrine that enshrines Maeda Toshiie was moved
to the present location in 1873. The main gate is a peculiar mix
of traditional Japanese, Chinese, and European religious architectural
elements. This gate, which was designated as Japan's important cultural
assets, was completed in 1875. One of the highlights of Oyama Shrine
is the garden in round-the-pond style with an artificial island
and bridge in the images of old musical instruments, such as the
biwa (Japanese short-necked fretted lute).
