Utatsuyama is a mountain located in the northeast of the Asanogawa River, and the whole serves as a park. The summit of the mountain (with an altitude of 141m) serves as an observatory (Utatsuyama Bokodai Observatory), where you can overlook the Kahoku Lagoon and the Sea of Japan as well as the central part of the city on fine days. The night view of Kanazawa seen from the summit is recommended as well. Besides, mid-June to mid-July is the best season to see the Japanese irises and hydrangeas in the Iris Garden halfway up the mountain.
