Full description
The Kanazawa Geisha District Tour will introduce you to this beautiful and intriguing quarter of Kanazawa city’s long held culture and charm. Be taken down the enchanting back streets to visit the less commercial aspects of this charming tea district. Where untouched enclaves take you back to samurai times when this entertainment district was in its heyday. The Kanazawa Samurai District Tour will take you back in time to one of the best preserved samurai districts in Japan. The streets are lined with mud and straw walls encapsulating the unspoilt extravagance of the samurai era. Be taken through this romantic enclave on a trip back in time with this tour.

Feel the power and influence of the Lords of Kanazawa by visiting the Kanazawa Castle grounds and park area. View the beautiful white lead roof tiles, touch the formidable Ishikawa-mon Gate and enjoy the tranquility of Lord Maeda’s personal gardens. The defenses and grounds were constructed over hundreds of years as the country changed from war to peace, making them a combination of the best craftsmanship, ingenuity and design of the Edo period. Join this tour to make sure you don’t miss anything on your trip through this historical and political center of Kanazawa.

Since the Edo period (1603~), Kenrokuen Garden has been regarded as one of the most beautiful feudal gardens in all of Japan. There is so much to see, such as the Kotoji-toro (lantern with features of a Japanese ‘harp’), the island with the ageless hermit, the lake and natural water fountain, the tea houses and so much more. Plum and cherry blossoms can be seen in spring, azaleas and irises in early summer, leaves with hues of red and yellow in autumn/fall and snow and yukizuri (traditional snow ropes) in winter. Let this walking tour transform your time there into a breathtaking experience.
