DETAILED ITINERARY

Kanazawa is the capital city of Ishikawa Prefecture; the city’s name translates to “marsh of gold” due to a legend that the peasant Imohori Togoro washed gold dust in a local mash. Rightfully so, the city is rich in traditional crafts, nature and cuisine. It also led the development of high cultures and activities such as Kanazawa gold leaf and Kaga Yuzen. Kanazawa is a city where past and present coexist, since the city was not harmed during WWII many streets and neighbourhoods still remain the same. These streets merge together with present day Kanazawa of new buildings and structures.
