Kanazawa Private Tour
Where Edo Culture Lives On
During the Edo Period, Kanazawa (金沢) served as the seat of the Maeda clan, the second most powerful clan after the Tokugawa in terms of rice production and fief size. Accordingly, Kanazawa grew to become a town of great cultural achievements, rivaling Kyoto and Edo (Tokyo).
In the Second World War, Kanazawa was Japan’s second largest city (after Kyoto) to escape destruction by air raids. As a result parts of the old castle town, such as samurai, temple and pleasure districts are in good condition.
Kenrokuen (兼六園) in Kanazawa is justifiably classified as one of Japan’s “three most beautiful landscape gardens” alongside Mito’s Kairakuen and Okayama‘s Korakuen.
In the evening explore the Geisha districts after dark, hear the tales of what actually went on in this district during the Edo period on our private evening tour. A private meeting with a Geisha, can also be organized.
