    Ishikawa Pref. Kanazawashi Nagamachi 2-4-36
    "A tourist information facility located in the Nagamachi Samurai District in Kanazawa City where visitors can take a break and go to the bathroom. Although built with iron, stainless steel, and other modern materials, the facility's atmosphere is wholly that of a traditional samurai estate. The facility has a tourism pamphlet area and exhibition corner and you can learn about the history and culture of the area or take a break and rest in between exploring the town. ""Maido-san"" volunteer sightseeing guides are always on hand, so feel free to make use of their services and get guidance on the Nagamachi neighborhood."

    長町武家屋敷休憩館は、散策途中に気軽に立ち寄れる重宝する施設。 休憩室や綺麗なトイレ、観光パンフレットや展示コーナーが設けられていて便利です。 寒い時期でしたので、オアシス的な存在でした。 観光ボランティアガイドさんも親切で、お話を聞いていると勉強になり楽しかったです。

    Ishikawa Kanazawa-shi Yuwakutagojimamachi I30-1

    湯涌温泉の入り口部分にあり、ゆわく温泉旅館観光案内所という看板があります。その上には少し色あせた東洋一と称された白雲楼ホテルの写真のパネルがありました。既に解体されて現存しませんが、パネルを見てもその豪華さがわかります。案内所は開いていましたが、偶々不在のようでした。最初に訪れた湯涌夢二館で観光パンフやマップを入手しました。

Ishikawa Areas

Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
