Kanazawa is rich in culture and heritage, Historically, the city of Kanazawa was one of the most powerful cities in Japan. During the Edo period the area was home to some of the country’s greatest cultural achievements rivaling Kyoto and Tokyo. The ruling lord emphasized the development of cultural arts on his serving samurai and the castle town developed some of the best kept culture in Japan. Below are just a few tours put together to allow our guests to delve into some of that culture.

What Our Customers Say

We had a delightful day with Nozomi exploring Kanazawa... we basically covered everything... spectacular gardens , samurai area , geisha area and tea ceremony. She was a perfect tour guide and was able to give us a lot of historical perspectives and references . She was able to tailor the tour to our likes and dislikes. We were very appreciative of her help securing a train ticket at the end of our tour since navigating the train station would have been difficult for us. Her English was outstanding but beyond that she had real joy in sharing her city and culture. We would highly recommend her to anyone.
