  • Kanazawa reportedly produces 99% of the gold leaf in japan using a method that is different to the rest of the world. This lead us to visiting this small museum during our trip to the old Higashi Chay...  more »
  • We asked the host if we could explain the gold leaf manufacturing, a guide speaking very good french made us an exciting tour! Loved it! Children (aged 12 and 9) have followed. It is recommended!

Where to stay in Kanazawa

The well-preserved castle town of Kanazawa has a good range of accommodations, with the most popular among them sitting in tall modern blocks overlooking the historical areas of town, or the more commercial parts. Look to the west of the castle grounds for some particularly well-positioned options, offering urban views, spas, pools, and restaurants. North-west from here, close to the main train station, you'll find a good selection of slightly simpler options in tall blocks, while the residential districts across the city house simple guesthouses and the odd hostel.
