What to Expect

Kanazawa flourished as a castle town for the Kaga clan during the Edo period ( 1603AD - 1867AD ). Kenrokuen garden was constructed as a strolling style landscape garden by the feudal lord Maedas of the Kaga clan. The garden is said to have 6 attributes which are very important for the best garden. They are largeness, seclusion, gardening technique , long history, panoramic view and running stream. The garden is installed some good luck symbols such as a crane, a tortoise, wild geese, a gourd and the Koto music instrument. These good luck symbols reflect the wishes of the lord Maedas, longevity and prosperity. In this tour, we visit Higashi Chaya Geisha district, gold leaf workshop, Kenrokuen garden and Kanazawa castle park.

I was born and brought up in Kanazawa, and live in Kanazawa. So,I know every corner of this town. I am a national licensed tour guide. I started operating tour guide business in 2004 after retired from the local government office. I enjoyed hobbies when I found my spare time. In my twenties and thirties, I walked along many peaks of Northern Japan Alps during the summer mountain season. I travelled many places domestic and abroad. I also enjoyed skiing while I was in my forties and fifties. I have offered tour guides to over 1,000 tourists since I started tour guiding. I explain local history and culture, religion, traditional arts and crafts, and food, etc. I try my best to have customers' satisfaction, and make your tours enjoyable and memorable.Hokuriku Shinkansen bullet trains started operating between Tokyo and Kanazawa on March 14, 2015. It takes about 2 and half hours. You will be able to make one-day tour to Kanazawa from Tokyo. I look forward to having your application. read more
