Kanazawa

Kanazawa is the capital of Ishikawa Prefecture, on Japan’s central Honshu Island.

It's known for well-preserved Edo-era districts, art museums and regional handicrafts. Kenrokuen Garden, begun in the 17th century, is celebrated for its classic landscape designs incorporating ponds and streams. Adjacent Kanazawa Castle was built in the 1580s, after the defeat of the Peasant’s Kingdom, Japan's only Buddhist fiefdom.

Kanazawa is sometimes called “little Kyoto” and for good reason: It’s packed with first-rate sights, including one of the country’s best gardens, some great museums and several beautifully preserved neighborhoods.
