Kanazawa Tours

The city of Kanazawa is located in the prefecture of Ishikawa, it is also a city that is a center of cultural and beautiful landscapes and structures. It was able to survive the air raids that occurred during World War Two. Unfortunately, Kenrokuen Garden and other admirable attractions were affected, but were rebuilt after some time when peace was restored.

Kanazawa is located in Ishikawa Prefecture and is the capital of the area. The city was the home for the Maeda Clan during the Edo Period and developed as a castle town. To the southeast of the city are Mount Utatsu and Mount Termachidai. Kanagawa was built between the Saigawa and Asanogawa rivers. It was the second most powerful clan after the Tokugawa, the ruling family of that time. At that time the city attained many cultural achievements that would rival Kyoto and Edo (Tokyo). For the coming centuries Kanazawa was able to avoid major natural disasters and severe damages from war. When visiting the city you can see the beautifully preserved samurai districts.

The most famous place you must visit in Kanazawa is the Kenrokuen. It is one of the top three landscape gardens in Japan along with Kairakuen and Korakuen. The garden was constructed by the Maeda clan over the span of two centuries. In 1871, the garden became open to the public and features six attributes that follows the Chinese landscape theory. The seclusion, spaciousness, artificiality, abundant water, antiquity, and broad views are the essential qualities needed to make the perfect garden according to that theory. On the grounds a variety of flowers have been planted so that there will be something different to enjoy when the seasons change. Close by Kenrokuen is the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art. Inside the circular structure are works from acclaimed artists in Japan and around the world. The most notable piece of work is Leandro Erlich’s “Swimming Pool.” It is a pool where people can enter it from the bottom to give the illusion that they are underwater.

In Kanazawa there are two districts that are great historical stops. Higashi Chaya District is where you can find teahouses that geisha once entertained guests. There are two teahouses that are open to the public, but one of them still operates as a restaurant while the other is a museum. The Shima Teahouse was converted into a museum where it preserves the rooms geisha used. Traditional Japanese instruments are displayed also displayed in the rooms. Another historical area to visit is the Nagamachi Samurai District. The former samurai homes are located near the former Kanazawa Castle. Visitors can enter a restored home that displays the lifestyle of the samurai residents back then. In addition there is the Shinise Kinenkan Museum, which is a restored pharmacy that displays the life the merchant class had. There are many other homes that were turned into museums and are worth the trip to make.
