Our family's trip to Japan was extremely well planned and well executed, on very short notice... Hats off to you!
Japan - Kanazawa
Situated on the western coast of Honshu Island, diagonally northwest from Tokyo, Kanazawa is not on the radar of many foreign tourists, but it has long been a destination of choice for the Japanese themselves. The historic preservation (in some cases, recreation) of Kanazawa's samurai, geisha and merchant districts make it one of the foremost examples of life in Edo Period Japan (1603-1868).
