    If you're in need of help

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you need a helping hand in Kanazawa check out the tourist information center inside Kanazawa station. It’s right near the main doors of the station. They have English speaking staff, maps and a solid knowledge of the city (of course). They will have you on your way to adventure in no time. They may even be able to provide a free guide around town for you.

    Hours of operation 9am-7pm

    Volunteer Guides

    Our guide showing us the Geisha street

    Favorite thing: One way that you get to see a place through a local person is to organise a volunteer guide. We did this in Kanazawa for an afternoon and were able to find out a lot more about the Samurai and Geisha districts in Kanazawa. The guides are volunteers and their command of English and knowledge varies. We made sure we had a couple of small gifts for our guide and did pay for "afternoon tea".We also paid for transport costs.

    Samurai

    Favorite thing: There are beautiful temples and a famous garden in Kanazawa, but the most interesting thing about Kanazawa are to see the old Samurai-houses and the Geisha-houses. This is a Samurai-House. Some of them you can visit as they now are a museum.

    Favorite thing: Go to the Kenrokuen garden. It belongs to the top three of beautiful gardens in Japan

    Fondest memory: The kenrokuen garden is a very nice place to find some rest and let your mind come at ease.
