Kanazawa is now being referred to as a “Little Kyoto” and with good reason. The city is packed with historical jewels, including one of the country’s best kept gardens, along with some incredible museums and it boasts beautifully preserved samurai and geisha districts, Kanazawa is a real delight to visit.
Kanazawa has recently been added onto the Shinkansen network and has opened itself up to a new stream of visitors. It is a relatively compact city with a fine group of attractions located around a green core formed by Kanazawa’s Castle Park and Kenroku-en Garden (both among the city’s unmissable sights). South of the park you’ll find three great museums and the well preserved samurai and geisha districts

Within easy distance of the central core are some fantastic districts of traditional houses that used to serve as the city’s entertainment districts. A two or three night stay here is ideal to see all what Kanazawa has to offer.
