Kanazawa is a city with strong cultural identity, situated on the west coast of Honshu Island, to the south of Noto Peninsula. Explore the remains of walls, gates, and some buildings of Maeda family castle, who provided prosperity for 300 years from 16th century while much of Japan was unstable. Kenroku-en, former castle garden, is one of the "great three" gardens in Japan and excellent example of Japanese landscape gardening - it's a haven of tranquil ponds, winding streams, ancient trees and bridges lined with stone lanterns.
Explore the stone design and subtle beauty of Gyokusen-en Garden, built on two levels set against the steep slope and 300-year-old Omicho Market, a maze of jolly shops offering a wide array of seafood and produce. Kanazawa is the home of Kutani ware porcelain, fine lacquer and ancient silk industry - examples can be seen in Craft Museum's Silk Centre. Also worth seeing are Seisonkaku Villa, Nagamachi Samurai Quarter, the Higashi Pleasure District, the Art and Honda Museums.
