Kanazawa
An old castle town largely unspoiled during World War II, Kanazawa features well-preserved architecture spread across a range of districts.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Gokayama and Shima. Explore Kanazawa's surroundings by going to Ainokura Gassho Community (in Nanto) and Shirakawa-mura (Wada House & The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Traditional Houses in the Gassho Style). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Kenrokuen Garden, don't miss a visit to Omicho Market, step into the grandiose world of Kanazawa Castle, and get great views at Kazuemachi Tea House Street.
