Kanazawa

Surrounded by the Japan Alps, Hakusan National Park and Noto Peninsula Natural Park, Kanazawa offers a natural background of great beauty, giving the city a relaxed feeling.

Providing a tranquil contrast to the bustling cities, any journey to this area is a feast for the eyes.

Spared during the World War II bombings, Kanazawa is known for its well-preserved Edo-era districts, art museums and regional handicrafts.

Wander through the city’s distinct tea districts; explore Nagamachi, the samurai district with narrow lanes, earthen walls and private entrance gates; look carefully at the stone walls of Kanazawa Castle, varying in some places due to being built in different periods, some more than 400 years old; admire the beauty of Kenrokuen Garden, covering 28 acres it is considered one of Japan’s more beautiful gardens; or visit the bustling Omicho markets, a haven for food lovers. If your itinerary allows, be sure to visit this charming ancient castle town.
