Kanazawa is one of the few Japanese cities left largely untouched by the ravages of World War II. As a result, many ancient sites have been preserved and have become national treasures.
The winter period in Kanazawa is known for its high-quality seafood, which includes crab, salmon, and yellowtail.
The village of Shirakawago is an iconic sight of rural Japan, and is all the more beautiful in winter.
The city of Takayama, sometimes called “little Kyoto” has a rich historical heritage and unique charm.
