Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
A city steeped in history, bordering scenic mountains and perfectly perched on the Sea of Japan, awaits your eager exploration. If you’re after the best-preserved view into ancient Japanese culture, there are few places that can rival Kanazawa, Japan - significantly spared fire-bombing during WWII. The historic heart of the city offers abundant cultural ticks, from Higashi Chaya, the famous geisha district, to stately Kanazawa Castle. In a contrasting appeal, the contemporary downtown district of Katamachi will ensure you’re not left wanting for things to do in Kanazawa. For those with a love for architecture, you’ll find Kenrokuen, one of Japan’s most beautiful gardens an unchallenged highlight.
