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."

Hideo is a great guide. His English is good and he knows the site and sites well. He also moves quickly so you get to see a lot. Using trains and buses you also get a feel for the city. We walked about 10 mines during the day but with the stops etc. it did not feel difficult. I was very pleased with Hideo.
We love Mr Hideo so much. We are family of 12 and he was able to managed us very well with his prepared tour itinerary. He picked us up from our apartment and guide us all the way through the scenic spots using local trains. Highly recommended! Thank you so much Mr Hideo :)
We had two separate tours with Hideo. One for a full day to Osaka and another to Hiroshima. Hideo is very thorough in his planning and well-organized. He plans everything in detail but at the same time is very flexible according to our interests. He gave us good advice and ideas while proposing the itinerary. He is punctual and knows the cities well. He is also humble and patient and very hardworking. Thank you Hideo for bringing us around!
Hideo is a pleasant man, very knowledgeable as you would expect of a private tour guide, and ultimately made our Kyoto stay every memorable. We had a great time visiting the must see places as we only spent 3 days 2 nights there, so we decided to make the most of the with Hideo. We'll be back to Japan again and we'll be sure to book with Hideo once more!
We spent 5 enjoyable days with Hideo in Osaka and Kyoto. He was well organised, puntual, patient and flexible with our plans. He was particularly kind to assist us in any way we required, and was a pleasure to get to know during our stay in these two cities. A big thank you, again!
