What you'll do

Buckle up for a practical crash course in getting around Kanazawa like a pro – and a golden opportunity to check out a couple of the city’s must-sees along the way. With your sensei – er, local host – leading the way, you’ll get a feel for the city center, starting at the 120-year-old Kanazawa Station and its surrounding hub of stores, restaurants, and, of course, the exquisite Tsuzumi Gate, an unofficial symbol of the city. At Omicho Market, the “Kitchen of Kanazawa”, join locals browsing stalls packed with mouthwatering food (and get plenty of delicious recommendations from your local insider), then head to Kenroku-en Garden, a famous Japanese landscaped garden that’s conveniently situated right by the bustling downtown Katamachi shopping district.

Where you’ll go

With your local host to lead you through the historic heart of Kanazawa, you’ll get to grips with three of the city’s most important sightseeing districts: the Kanazawa Station area, Omicho Market a 15-minute walk away, and the Kenrokuen area a mile further south. Why? If you can get a masterclass in navigating the tangled transport system at Kanazawa Station, hold your own with locals jostling through 180 tightly-packed stalls at the crowded Omicho Market (and experience the true culinary culture of the city, while you’re at it), and learn everything you need to know about the city’s fascinating samurai history at Kenrokuen Garden and Kanazawa Castle, you’ll be well-equipped to explore the rest of the city like a true local!
