Often referred to as Kyoto’s younger sibling, the compact city of Kanazawa is an excellent place to head if you are looking to experience a well-preserved Edo-period town, which has managed to retain an authentic atmosphere and charm. Similar to Kyoto, Kanazawa managed to completely escape the destruction of aerial bombing in WW2, meaning large parts of the town have remained intact and unchanged for many years. The way in which it differs from Kyoto, is the lack of crowds and tour buses – Kanazawa is relatively quiet, even in peak season, meaning it’s a great place to explore at a leisurely pace.

Today, Kanazawa remains an important city in the region and serves as the capital of Ishikawa Prefecture. It is home to several popular attractions including what is considered one of the best Japanese gardens in the country, several historic districts and a handful of interesting museums.
