    From a friend you have visited Kanazawa sushi "going Mori sushi", I was recommended to take a makeshift ticket to the opening. We could had gotten another couple ago 7:00 goes well and opened at the same time. We could get our sushi sushi rice slightly warm to eat in Tokyo. There was very good. It is a great satisfaction. I think a little bit more later, if you want to buy, just enjoy the lively atmosphere of the OMI market.

    Sashimi, sushi, and eaten on the spot. Bring the moment you enter. I think it is exactly a good distance to wander around.

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.
