An old castle town largely unspoiled during World War II, Kanazawa features well-preserved architecture spread across a range of districts.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Kanazawa Phonograph Museum and Shinise Memorial Hall. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ainokura Gassho Community and Natadera Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Suganuma Gassho Community (in Nanto), Shirakawago (in Shirakawa-mura) and Maruoka Castle (in Sakai). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at D. T. Suzuki Museum, wander the streets of Higashichaya Old Town, look for gifts at Lacquer Ware Nosaku, and admire the masterpieces at Kanazawa Noh Museum.
