Port Spots in Ishikawa Area

  • Kanazawa Port
    Ishikawa Prefecture Kanazawa city
    A port located in the center of the Sea of Japan coast which serves as a base for tourism and international trade. The port was created in 1954 by merging the former ports of Ono and Kanaiwa. The port bustles with large passenger vessels docking here from around the world. The port also has a scenic park, a fishing area, and other facilities. The Port of Kanazawa Cruise Welcome Club was established so that members could welcome and send off passenger cruise vessels in true Ishikawa style; members also get perks such as ship tours and commemorative mementos. Each year, during the Minato Festa Kanazawa festival, bus tours of the port and a variety of other events are held.

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.
