Kanazawa Day Trip  (3 Answers)

We are traveling to Japan for 1 month holiday at end September and spending in part, 3 nights in Kanazawa. I was looking at a day trip to Takayama /Gokayama & Shirakawa-go area. What is the best way to see this area. I have only found 1 day tour leaving from Kanazawa to this location for about 9800 yen (whitering). Is there any other tour company to this area OR is it best to travel independently by train for the day

full day tour of Kanazawa  (2 Answers)

We arrive in Kanazawa on June 14th by cruise ship.Are there any Goodwill guide services that we can book for our day in town ? ..... we arrive early morning and we are in port for 12 hours.
If possible we would love to experience any of the local markets including Omi-Cho market and also the geisha district.....We are seafood and sushi lovers so would love to experience a local non-tourist restaurant that specializes in these foods.

Better area to stay - Korinbo vs Omicho Market?  (2 Answers)

Four of us ladies will be visiting Kanazawa for 3 nights and deliberating between staying at either the Toyoko Inn Korinbo or a ryokan near the Omicho market (Sumiyoshiya). Would anyone be able to tell me which location is better in term of accessibility, surrounding places to eat in the evening, prettier, etc? We plan to visit most of the attractions from the Higashi Chaya District down to the Nishi Chaya District.

Toyoko Inn is cheaper at ¥3433/pax/night with breakfast (Sumiyoshiya charges ¥4900/pax/night w/out breakfast), and is in a modern shopping district with easy bus access. However, its room is really small in comparison to the ryokan. The ryokan also of cause has more charm. I would like to know whether it is worth the additional cost of the ryokan? Wouldn't want to spend more for the ryokan just to discover that the immediate vicinity in the evening has nothing to offer and the surrounds aren't as nice as Korinbo.

Secondly, Read that the bus services stop pretty early. How is the walk between Toyoko Inn Korinbo and Kazuemachi Chaya District at night? Is it an interesting walk or we go pass dark, quiet and dull places? This is in incase we decide to stay at Korinbo. One of the days we plan to visit Kazuemachi Chaya District at dusk since I heard that it is beautiful at that time. If we have dinner around there we may miss the last bus back to Korinbo. Thus, wondering if it is ok to walk? I know the distance is only something like 10 minutes but is it a pleasant walk for women? Are there many places for dinner around there or we better off looking for dinner at Korinbo?

Kanazawa Light-Up Bus Pick-Up & Drop-Off Points  (2 Answers)

Hi Guys,

I will be visiting Kanazawa for 3 nights April 20-23rd. I researched the Kanazawa Light-Up bus and found its schedule and all the bus stops. The website mentions that it starts from Terminal #1 at East Gate of Kanazawa Station and takes 32minutes. My question is can we get on and off this bus from any of the stop or only from the station? Ie, if I stay in Korinbo it will be easier for me to start and end the tour at the Korinbo Stop (No7).

reservation necessary for Ninja temple visit ?

hi everyone,
just wondering if it was really necessary to phone and book in advance to make that visit... my Japanese being somewhat limited, it would be easier if i could just show up. I am staying for 2 days in Kanazawa so maybe i could also stop by on my first day to book the 2nd day ?
thanks in advance,
