Kanazawa Walking Tour

We'll meet at 1 pm by the Tsuzumi Gate of Kanazawa Station and hop on board a public bus to the Nagamachi Samurai district.

When we arrive, we'll visit the restored former residence of the Nomura-ke samurai family so you can see how they lived. We'll learn all about their origins as we explore the streets of this district. You'll feel like you've travelled back in time!

Then, we'll visit Kanazawa Castle and discover its beautiful surroundings. Did you know that the origin of this building dates back to the 16th century? A fire, a military base, a university campus... learn all about the castle's fascinating history!

Next we'll visit Kenrokuen, listed as one of the most beautiful gardens in Japan. Tranquillity, trickling streams, beautiful bridges and incredible panoramic views await us. 

Afterwards we'll head to Higashi-chaya, the geisha district of Kanazawa. We'll learn all about these legendary Japanese female characters as we walk through charming streets, admiring wooden houses and tea rooms. We'll also discover the local handicrafts and taste some gold leaf ice cream

We'll end the tour by returning to the starting point at 5:30 pm.
