A Half Day In Kanazawa With A Local: Private & Personalized

A rival to Kyoto as the historic jewel of Japan, Kanazawa is a melting pot of art, culture, and history, where tradition reigns supreme. You might explore the Nagamachi neighborhood, a historic samurai district, and Higashi Chaya, where old geisha houses have been converted into teahouses and restaurants. A tranquil stroll through Kenroku-en, one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, should be on every bucket list, while the 280-year-old “Kitchen of Kanazawa”, Omicho Market, is a must-visit for street food and a perfect snapshot of local life.

Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
