What you can expect

Customize your own itinerary and spend a day exploring Kanazawa city with a private chauffeur at your service. A city steeped in history, Kanazawa offers a look into traditional Japanese culture, heritage, and aesthetics. Visit every site that catches your eye during your flexible day.

Start your day with hotel pickup by your private chauffeur, who will escort you throughout your day in Kanazawa. The city, now the capital of the Ishikawa Prefecture, was once the seat of the Maeda Clan, the second most powerful feudal family during Japan's Edo Period. Having escaped destruction during World War II, much of its historic architecture has survived to this day. Plan your itinerary around Kanazawa's storied past and explore its heritage for yourself.

Visit Kanazawa Castle, first built in 1583 by the Maeda Clan. Learn about the history of the castle and the Maeda Clan as you wander its grounds, observing an original 1788 gate and reconstructed turrets. After the castle, head to the Kenrokuen Garden, which is honored as part of the top 3 most beautiful gardens in Japan. Immerse yourself in the serene beauty, soaking in the calculated disorder of Japanese aesthetics.

For a look at modern Kanazawa, pay a visit to the 21st Century Museum to marvel at contemporary art from Japanese and international creators, or head to Omicho Market, the city's largest fresh food market. In the evening, get dropped off at your hotel again as an easy end to your day.
