What’s Special about Kanazawa?

Backyard Travel’s customized Kanazawa tours let you see this special city through a local’s eyes. Beyond the famed castle, temples and gardens, our Travel Specialists will introduce you to the heart and soul of the region, including favorite local haunts, museums and craft shops.



CHARACTER

Simultaneously a prefrectural capital and a historical hub, Kanazawa embraces both ancient and modern traditions. You’ll learn about the clan culture that shaped Kanazawa and meet the local artisans who carry on centuries-old trades.



CLIMATE

The climate in Kanazawa is similar to that of Tokyo or Osaka. With four distinct seasons, the weather is mildest during spring and autumn.



ENTERTAINMENT

On a custom Kanazawa tour your private guide can show you the best and liveliest venues. Pop into an old geisha teahouse to see the artistry behind traditional Japanese entertainment.



CULTURE

From the imposing Kanazawa Castle and the samurai mansions to the myriad teashops and traditional townhouses, a private Kanazawa tour is replete with heritage and culture.



LANGUAGE

While Japanese is the only language spoken here, a tailored Kanazawa tour will offer locally based, English-speaking guides to help interpret, so you can navigate without language barriers.



HISTORY

The influence of the powerful Maeda clan put Kanazawa on the map in the 17 th century. The city has not suffered destruction through war or natural disasters—a rarity in Japan—leaving Kanazawa’s historical buildings intact.
