About
This is a one-day, 7-hour tour around Hokuriku's first castle town, "Kanazawa," with a local guide. Kanazawa is said to be the origin of the city that Kanazawa Mido used as a base of missionary work in Honjyo in the middle of the 16th century. Later in the 16th century, Maeda Toshiya established Kanazawa castle in this area, and since then it developed as the castle town of Kaga Hyakumaishi, prospering from the 17th century during the Edo era to the end of the 19th century. After Edo (Tokyo) and Osaka, alongside the big cities of the scale after Kyoto, it is said that there was this. The samurai city formed around the castle as a vibrant merchant city, and a temple town which was arranged to protect the castle. The atmosphere of the castle town still remains as a place where Japanese culture is beautifully on display.

We had an excellent tour of Kanazawa. Our guide Kazue was friendly, knowledgeable and went out of her way to show us round the city and the Kenrokuen gardens. The goldleaf workshop was also great.

Tremendous time around a fascinating trip in a very interesting location. The Kenrokuen Gardens are a place not too miss but what was also very enjoyable , was the time spent at a gold leaf museum ,where I was able to make my own gold leaf chopsticks !---now I have to learn how to use them !

My husband and I highly recommend this walking tour when visiting Kanazawa. Our tour guide, Yuki, was knowledgeable, flexible and had a good pace. We almost felt like locals with her and her English was very good. We learned so much about Japanese traditions and history.

We felt at ease as soon as we met our guide, Fumie: she speaks perfect English and is very personable. She took us on a gastronomical, cultural and historical walk of Kanazawa. We ended the day physically tired (we probably walked 6-7 miles) but fully satisfied with this enriching experience. Fumie was also accommodating of our specific needs and requests and all our questions were answered. She even recommended a great place for dinner that we enjoyed afterward.

We had a wonderful, full day with Fumie, walking throughout the main highlights of Kanazawa and learning so much about its culture. Fumie was full of information and knew exactly where to take us based on what we had described when making the reservation. I would gladly do other tours with her!

Makiko was a fantastic tour guide, she really showed the "insider" view of various areas -- the geisha and samurai district -- and even recommended a wonderful sushi restaurant, far from the tourist area, quite historic even. Cheerful, friendly, helpful, and very informative with tons of useful tips! She even helped me at the station with the shinkansen ticket back to Tokyo. Thank you again.

We had an amazing day seeing the city with our guide Fumie. She took us to various attractions in the city, some of which we had planned to visit and some we wouldn't have found otherwise. We were given a great insight into the city of Kanazawa and Japan in general. Transport was by foot and by bus which Fumie arranged for us and guided us through, and lunch was an amazing curry at Fumie's recommendation. We can't recommend this highly enough!
