Full description
Taste your way through the city center of Kanazawa as a private guide leads you through its streets on foot to sample local delicacies. Head to Kanazawa Station’s iconic Tsuzumi Gate after meeting your guide, and peer into the area’s bustling shops and cafes. Make your way down the main road to Omicho Market, the “Kitchen of Kanazawa," and join locals jostling their way through the 180 stands. Sample some of the best street food in the city, such as fried squid skewers. Take a break from feasting to explore Katamachi, a vibrant downtown shopping district that has plenty of neon-lit pubs, clubs, bars, and live music venues. Savor Kanazawa-style pork curry or Hanton rice at a no-frills restaurant. Squeeze in some sightseeing at Kanazawa Castle before indulging in a decadent specialty: glittering gold leaf ice-cream. Stop off at a dimly-lit izakaya (casual Japanese pub) to taste some of Japan’s freshest sashimi with a cold beer. Conclude the tour with a peaceful stroll to Oyama Shrine, known for its Dutch-style stained glass. Take a few extra minutes if desired to explore the famous Nishi Chaya geisha district.
