Day 1

Arrival in Kanazawa

Today you’ll arrive in Kanazawa and check into your centrally located hotel.  Depending on what time you get settled in, you may want to take in some of the sights, otherwise, head to the Katamachi district for the evening. Here you’ll find many of the city’s best restaurants and bars, so you can grab a table, fill your belly with sushi, and watch the vibrant nightlife unfold around you.

Days 2-3

Free time & Departure

The centre of Kanazawa is easy to explore on foot, although there is a regular shuttle bus or even bicycle rental if you prefer. Kenroku-en Castle and the perfectly manicured gardens surrounding it form the centrepiece of the city, and you’ll also have plenty of time to wander through the well-preserved Samurai and Geisha districts.

Locals buying their groceries at a traditional market

As well as a pleasant seafront and some interesting museums, we highly recommend paying a visit to the Omi-cho market, where you’ll see the bustle of everyday life and taste the very freshest fish and seafood available.

After a full day and a good night’s sleep, it’ll be time to continue onto your next destination.
