An old castle town largely unspoiled during World War II, Kanazawa features well-preserved architecture spread across a range of districts.
Get out of town with these interesting Kanazawa side-trips: Nanto (Gokayama & Gokayama Folk Museum). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Higashichaya Old Town, admire the masterpieces at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, make a trip to Omicho Market, and admire the striking features of Kanazawa Station.

To find other places to visit, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Kanazawa trip itinerary planner.

Vancouver, Canada to Kanazawa is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight, tram, and train. You can also fly. You'll lose 17 hours traveling from Vancouver to Kanazawa due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Vancouver in November, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Kanazawa: temperatures range from °C by day to °C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to drive to Shika-machi.
