Next, you’ll spend a couple of days in Kanazawa on Japan’s western coast, an attractive city bursting with culture and history. You’ll be staying in a centrally located hotel, and the attractions are easy to explore on foot. Largely untouched by the war, the city boasts beautifully preserved Samurai and Geisha districts, as well as one of the country’s finest gardens, all centred around the impressive Kenroku-en Castle. Its proximity to the sea has also made it a hotspot for fish and seafood dishes, so a great place to be if you’re hungry. During your time in Kanazawa, you’ll also take part in a traditional tea ceremony with a Sado Master.
