Connecting with Kanazawa

 

The prefecture of Ishikawa, and particularly its capital Kanazawa, was represented by a trade delegation who promoted culture, accommodation, food and beverage (saki anyone?) and craft. Hooper, who attended the event, says she was recently in the region and recommends it for clients seeking a different side to Japan. ‘It is beautiful. It has one of the best gardens in Japan and a great castle. It is also easy to get to by bullet train and there is even a special seven-day rail pass (Hokoriku Pass) that incorporates Osaka, Kanazawa and Kyoto.’ • See earlier coverage in TRAVELinc Memo Friday 19 October
