Kanazawa in Brief

Japan is a small country, but each region has its own unique culture. Kanazawa, the biggest city in the Hokuriku region, is located in the middle of Japan’s main island. It’s easy to get to from both Tokyo and Kyoto by road or rail. The city will be much more easily accessible once the Hokuriku Shinkansen (the new bullet train connecting Kanazawa and Tokyo) opens on March 14, 2015.
