Thank you, It’s ting-in!
The 10-day holiday of your dream is just around the corner, but have you decided where you’re going to travel?
If not, let’s go to Kanazawa!
With the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen, we were able to reach Kanazawa from Tokyo in about two hours and 30 minutes.The time required by express from Osaka and Nagoya is the same!Access from each city is excellent, and you can enjoy it enough even if you take a day trip.
In Kanazawa, where the old streets remain, why don’t you try to walk around the town wearing kimonos?Introducing recommended kimono rental shops and classic attractions!
It’s a bit of a walk around Kanazawa, so it’s a good idea to take a bus.A one-day free ticket for the Hokutetsu Bus, which runs all over the major tourist attractions, is on sale for 500 yen, so buy it at Kanazawa Station.
Kabayashi-bo kimono rental
Next, we went to a kimono rental shop in Kabayashi, a busy area that is the economic center of Kanazawa!This is the shop i used this time.Than the shops in front of Kanazawa Station, which is a number, you should be able to rent it at a relatively good deal!
Nagamachi Samurai Residence Ruins
Now that you’ve changed into a kimono, let’s start walking around town!First of all, we went to the nearest spot from Kabayashi, nagamachi samurai residence ruins.As the name suggests, it used to be a samurai residence.
21st Century Museum of Art
The 21st Century Museum of Art is surely located within walking of Kabayashi.The design office called SANAA, founded by Japan’s leading architects, Kazuyo Saejima and Tatee Nishizawa, was in charge of the design.When viewed from the sky, it is a round circle.
All the outer walls are curved glass.From the inside and the inside, a sense of transparency and a sense of openness is amazing!Anyone can walk free of charge if they just enter the “exchange zone”, such as the corridor of the perimeter.It’s an open museum.
Looking down on this pool from above, you can enjoy it for free without lining up because it is an exchange zone.However, in order to enter the water, you need a ticket to enter the exhibition zone.

Right next to the 21st Century Museum is Kenrokuen, one of the three famous japanese gardens, along with Korakuen in Okayama, mito‘s paradise.It is said to have been named Kenrokuen because it combines six of “Hirodai, Yu,Yu,Human power,aoko,water fountain, and the view”.
There is a pond in a very large site for the garden, and the construction mountain is made, and the undulation is unexpectedly violent, too.That, the big six garden of such a scale is a lot of impressive.
Still, the structure in the surrounding such as the wall, the moat, and the gate is very splendid!Between Kenrokuen and Kanazawa Castle, was it originally a moat?The road passes as thought, and there is a considerable height from the road to the stone wall.
If you come to Kanazawa facing the Sea of Japan with great pains, you want to eat delicious seafood, too, right?Omi-cho Market is the one that fulfills such a desire.If you pass through Kanazawa Castle Park, you can walk from the 21st Century Museum of Art and Kenrokuen.But don’t overdo it.
The last place to go is the Hokashi Chaya-gai, which is the most kanazawa-like place.It’s a little far from the center, so get off at the “Hashima-cho” bus stop of the Castle Town Kanazawa Tour Bus, and cross the Asanogawa Ohashi Bridge, made by Taisho with beautiful arches.
The Hhashi Chaya-gai street is a traditional town that flourished as a chaya-cho.The cobbled streets and cobbled landscapes are thoroughly unified and enchanted and beautiful.It has been selected as an important traditional building preservation district in japan, and “Shigeden ken” for short.
The kimono looks great here, too.There are many shops and cafes in the town, including traditional crafts and Japanese sweets, so it’s fun to go shopping and eat.Especially, the impact of “gold leaf software” is terrible.
Kanazawa is a compact tourist destination with good transportlinks and a day trip.Once you go and don’t lose!
However, there are many other scenery that can be seen only at this time of year, such as the snowy otani that reaches the height of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine route and the tulip field on one side of Tonami which is famous in the village.If you can stay one more night or two more, please come and visit us!
