Kanazawa Tourist Information Guide »

Hello and welcome to the Kanazawa Newsletter website. Each newsletter presents the city’s main tourist attractions and activities not to be missed.

Unaffected by recent natural disasters or the WWII air raids, Kanazawa possesses a number of remarkable sites and historical districts that bear witness to the culture of the Samurai and of the flourishing activity of a city which, in feudal times, rivalled the Capital.

Kanazawa is certainly a perfect destination for exploring the rich diversity of Japanese culture.


In 2015, Kanazawa will be even more accessible with the new high-speed shinkansen railway link from Tokyo via Nagano, which will take 2 hours and 30 minutes.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter, and have a pleasant trip!
