Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture
A city located along the western coast, near the Sea of Japan, Kanazawa is affectionately known as “Little Kyoto”.
Not only does it boast traditional Japanese houses, neighborhoods reminiscent of a town rich in history, cuisine featuring delicacies found only in Kanazawa, but a plethora of crafts and folk art recognized by UNESCO.
During your time in Kanazawa, explore Kenroku-en Garden, considered to be one of the most beautiful in Japan, the Teahouse Districts (where feudal lords once lived lavishly), or marvel the works of Gold Leaf artisans who decorate everything from chopsticks to cakes in gold.
