15-1 Takaoka-machi, Kanazawa, Ishikawa, 920-0864
Kanazawa is one of largest castle towns in Japan built by the Maeda family of the Kaga clan in the late 16th century. It retains many streets and cultural elements from the olden days owing to the fact that the city has escaped damage caused by war or major disasters for a period of over 400 years. Kanazawa’s unique charms include the tourist spots of Kanazawa Castle, Kenrokuen Garden, the long-established fish market, teahouse districts, the samurai district and tradesmen towns, as well as its traditional culture such as crafts, entertainment, and food.
Cherry blossoms in spring, shades of green in summer, colorful leaves in fall, and snowy scenes in winter－the abundance of nature in each season brings color to the remnants of the city’s history.
