Kanazawa
An old castle town largely unspoiled during World War II, Kanazawa features well-preserved architecture spread across a range of districts.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go Traditional Houses in the Gassho Style and Kanazawa Castle. Let the collections at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art and Shirakawago Gassho Zukuri Minkaen capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Kanazawa: Hodatsushimizu-cho (Noto Country Club, Shio Sakuranosato Kofun Park, & more), Eiheiji-cho (Seiryozan Tenryu-ji Temple & Daihonzan Eiheiji Temple) and Takayama (Fujii Art Gallery (Fujii Bijutsu Mingei-Kan), Takayama Jinya, & more). On the 23rd (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Washigatake Ski Area. Next up on the itinerary: take in nature's colorful creations at Kenrokuen Garden, contemplate the long history of Nomura Family Samurai House, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ninja Temple, and wander the streets of Higashichaya Old Town.
