We will use a public transportation (a loop bus) which is quite convenient to visit highlighted spots. The city of Kanazawa is very compact and you will be able to feel the appearance of the ancient samurai days in the feudal period as strolling the streets and the town.
Feel free to personalize this offer with YOSHIE.
- Nagamachi Samurai Residence District & Nomura Samurai House:
The middle class samurai of the Kaga clan resided here about 350-400 years ago. The streetscapes of the Nagamachi district evokes you the life style of samurai. It is excited to stroll in the narrow alleys with earthen walls and classy gates which have retained since the Edo era. you can find the historical and cultural values in the traditional Japanese style construction structure of Nomural Samural House with a chamber room and an alcove. The beautiful garden has awarded 2 stars of the Michelin Green Guide.
- Kanazawa Castle;
Ishikawamon Gate was rebuilt in 1788 in the Edo period. Roof of Ishikawamon gate looks very white, sparkling and beautiful. Why white? It is because lead is used for the roof and it became weather white. It is nice to see panoramas of the castle from the gate.
- Kenrokuen Garden
The garden is one of the three most famous landscape gardens of Japan with ponds, streams, 8200 trees, stone lanterns, tea houses, small bridges, and etc. This garden is also called a "feudal lord garden" as it started to create about 340 years ago by the 5th lord Maeda of the Kaga clan. It is very enjoyable to stroll around the garden.
- Higashi Geisha Tea House District:
You can find traditional Japanese wooden tea houses with beautiful lattices along with the stone pavements. It is also a fun to look into small shops in tea houses selling genuine local handcrafts such as wooden lacquer wares, gold leaf jewelries, and Japanese sweets. It is just like you are in a small world which give you very different impression from the town you are living.
