Where to Stay When Visiting Kanazawa

The capital city of a domain ruled by the wealthiest daimyo in Japan for over 250, Kanazawa exudes confidence in its cultural traditions that you can see even to this day. The city was the second largest in Japan to survive bombing during WWII so the number of historical buildings from the Edo period is second only to Kyoto. Walk the same paths as geisha and samurai, drink in the same tea houses as daimyos and create works of art just like the masters have been doing for centuries. Kanazawa is a city for those who want to experience all of Japan but don’t want the crushing crowds of Tokyo or Kyoto. It is also an excellent spot to see the region. The famous thatched-roof houses of Shirakawa-go are a short day trip away, as is the spectacular mountain and valley views of the Tateyama Alpine route and Kurobe Gorge. There is so much to do in the area and when you want to move on, transportation is easy to any major city or destinations by train or bus. Our tours are here to help you make the best out of your time in Japan and create experiences that will last for a lifetime.


Located on the northern side of the main Japanese, facing the Sea of Japan, Kanazawa sits conveniently almost equidistant between Osaka/Kyoto, Nagoya and Tokyo. From Osaka/Kyoto hop on the Thunderbird train to Tsuruga and then transfer to the Hokuriku Shinkansen. From Nagoya get on the Shirasagi until Tsuruga and, similar to before, transfer to the Hokuriku Shinkansen. Tokyo is a straight shot on the Hokuriku Shinkansen to Kanazawa. All three ways, depending on the type of train and transfers, take between two and three hours. Once you’re here is when the fun begins!



There is so much history, culture and tradition to find mixed with the modern in Kanazawa. In the city itself you can explore the old tea houses that geisha once worked, try your hand at making leaf products and try the delicious seafood, straight from the Sea of Japan. Just an hour or two trip in any direction will bring you to even more excellent destinations. The Snow Wall of Tateyama, the thatched-roofs of Shirakawa-go, the Zen Buddhist Temple of Eiheiji and the old town of Takayama are all easy day trips.

Kanazawa leans into both its past, its present and its future, all at the same time. The mix of geisha tea houses, samurai homes and Edo-period gardens with the hustle and bustle of the seafood focused Omicho Market, modern art mecca of the 21st Century Museum and the night/shopping area of Katamachi, Korinbo and Tatemachi, is a combination not found anywhere in Japan. The most powerful daimyo (excluding the Shogun himself) lived in Kanazawa and the city was the fourth largest in Japan at the beginning of the Meiji period. This samurai town focused on the arts to not scare the central government of the true power of the domain. This led to the perfection of many crafts such as gold leaf plating, kimono stitching, lacquerware painting and Noh theater.

Finally, walk through Higashi Chayamachi, the old geisha district, where you can shop, snack and take a tour of a former tea house that was used by actual geisha in the past.


The wealth of the Kaga domain was the greatest of all the daimyo and that shows in the art and culture that was produced in Kanazawa over the course of the Edo period.
