What to Expect

I would like to take you to Kenrokuen, Kanazawa Castle Park, Higashichaya district, Samurai residence district, and Omi Market.

Kenrokuen is a strolling-style landscape garden, one of the three most famous scenic gardens in Japan. The majestic pine tree is one of the best-known trees in the garden. In winter gardeners begin setting up "yukizuri" to prevent the branches from breaking down by heavy snow.

Kanazawa Castle was built more than 400 years ago. Many buildings were burned down in repeated fires. However some gates still remain. Other buidings were restored to their original form. Another attraction of the park is its great variety of stone walls.

Higashi Chaya District is the popular tourist area beside the Asanogawa River. The street features rows of old geisha houses that give us a feel for what Kanazawa was like in bygone days. The production of gold leaf accounts for 98 percent of the Japan total and you can see the process of making gold leaf and buy its products.

Samurai residence district is Nagamachi that brings to mind the streetscape of samural days. Thare are samurai residences and museums that evoke the lifestyle of the feudal period, so if you are interested in samurais and their culture, you should definitely go and have a look.

We would like to have freshfish, seafood and sashimi for lunch at Omi-cho Market.

About this tour, I would recommend you visit the tour of Kanazawa after you joined my tour "Historic Thatched House Village in Shirakawa-go."

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more
