Kanazawa is perhaps best known for its 17th century castle garden Kenroku-en. It is equally well known as the neighbor of the quintessential Japanese feudal fortress, Kanazawa Castle. A serious rival of Kyoto, this historical outlier has only recently re-emerged on the intrepid traveler’s map, as Kanazawa is now connected to Tokyo by Japan’s network of high-speed railway lines (Shinkansen). To get an authentic feel of how feudal Japan may have been like, Kanazawa has preserved various quarters that the land’s samurai and geisha used to inhabit. Lose yourself in the beautiful marketplaces, serene temples and the many museums dotting this exquisite city!
