Kanazawa, Japan

The highlight of this convivial modern city, within easy reach of Takayama or Kyoto, is Japan’s number one garden, the magnificent Kenrokuen.

In the classic ‘stroll garden’ style, this is a wonderful place to observe and enjoy the six elements that combine to form the perfect Japanese garden.

Exploring the city

Whilst in Kanazawa it is also well worth exploring the samurai district with its craft museums, and perhaps even to visit Ninja-dera, a temple famous for its association with this shadowy clan of assassins.

Around Kanazawa

Within striking distance of Kanazawa is the windswept Noto Peninsula, and Toyama, starting point of the splendid Kurobe Alpine Route that crosses the mountains to Matsumoto.
