Artisan Tours(Private)

A glimpse of Kanazawa’s arts

The artisan tour of Kanazawa was a highlight of our trip to Japan. Our guide, Nozomi, was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of Kanazawa as well as very friendly and gracious. She went out of her way to make sure we had a thorough introduction to the city and gave us great recommendations for sites to visit and places to eat. We toured a kimono painting studio and a ceramics museum. Ohi-San, the master ceramicist who is the 11th in his family line, gave us a private tour and served tea in the part of the museum that used to be his family home. It was truly an honor to talk with him about his art and travels around the world. I highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the arts. It will open your eyes to a part of the city and culture you don’t get to experience as a normal tourist.
