Kanazawa Tomodachi Tour guides have more than 10 years experience. They focus on even tiny things that show the idiosyncrasies between foreign visitors and the locals. They want to do something unique. Our guide not only showed us around the town sights but also talked about life, family, and things relative to us.
Our guide Shinichi-san took us to places only known to, or accessible by, locals.
One example was a beautiful traditional inn for lunch, where we were privileged to have an impromptu demonstration of the Koto instrument played beautifully. Also a visit to the 'Noh' museum was fascinating and fun.
It was a fantastic day for us, so different from the usual tours offered everywhere, so interesting and fun.

Date of experience: March 2020
