What to Expect

RECOMMENDED 8h TOUR

1. Omicho market place : 170 private stores with 290 year's tradition. Wide variety of local foodstuffs such as seafood, fruits, unique
vegetable can be seen or eaten. (One star by Michilin)

2. Kazuemachi and Higashiyama Geisha-House district : Built in 1820 and still showing an original feature. Can see the inside of some
houses.(One star by Michelin) Also can visit Gold-Leaf workshop and store. Entrans fee by option : 500yen/p for Shima-house &
750yen/p for Kaikaro-house

3. Kenrokuen Garden : The garden equipped with six conditions to be a completed one. One of the three most beautiful stroll-type-
Japanese garden. (Three stars by Michelin) Entrance fee : 310yen/p but no charge for over 65 yrs old

4. Kanazawa Castle precincit : Except one original gate(one star by Michelin), other two gates together with a long house of fortres
were beautifully reconstructed using traditional architectual technique. The precinct leads to another beautiful Three-Dementional
-Garden originally made for the Maeda family only. Entrance fee by option for the long-house with turret : 310yen/p
but no charge for over 65 yrs old.

5.We are almost at lunch area. My recomendation is a Couter-Tempura-lunch unless otherwise specific requirements.

6. Nagamachi Samurai-House district : Not like the other castle town , Samurai here were permitted to live out side of the castle
precinct. We can see the narrow streets of mud-wall remaining since feuda days. Nomura-House is one of them and can go inside
to see a nice private garden and rooms. (Two stars by Michelin) Entrance fee : 550yen/p

7.Myoryuji-Ninja Temple : No ninja lives here but this is the high grade Buddhist temple built around 350 years ago as a headquater
of the fortress temples. Lord Maeda, because of the position of 2nd richest following to Tokugawa Shogunate, he had been thinking
the way of survial but also thinking to fight when the Tokudawa attack them. In case of this final moment he built this temple with
different tricks inside. (One star by Michilin) Entrance fee : 800yen/p

TRANSPORTATION FEE : 2.500yen - 6,000yen /day for three using bus and taxi

Hello ! My name is Akira, the meaning is "brightness". Welcome to Kanazawa, the time-honored Castle Town of attractive Samurai Culture. After being a tour guide,I noticed that my experience spending in the Western Culture is helping me a lot to give easier explanation of anything mysterious about japan not only the historic attraction. I would try my best to find the most satisfaction of the day.
Thank you !

“ Had a wonderful experience in Kanazawa with this guide. ”

I had a truly wonderful experience in visiting Kanazawa by using Akira-san as a guide. His knowledge, kindness and humour allows me to enjoy my visit in Kanazawa. He brought me to lots of interesting places there (such as Higashiyama Geisha-House, Kenrokuen garden, Myoryuji -Ninja temple) and I really learned a lot from them. We are becoming a good friends and I would certainly use his service again when visiting Kanazawa area.
