Kanazawa Questions for KimJapan and Others

Jump to last reply

We have 2 full days in Kanazawa. It seems that there is much to do around the Castle and Kenroku Garden, including the Gyokusen Garden, Prefectural Products Center and the Prefectural Art Museum. Is there good shopping and eating in this area and thus should we plan on spending a whole day here?

We like to visit historical homes and it appears that there is one in the Geisha District where we are staying (Shima-ke) and one in the Samuai District (Nomura-ke). Are these worth visiting on another day and are there shopping or other attractions in these areas? How do we fill out that second day? Are there any not-to-be-missed temples, such as Myoryu-ji (which I have seen described as "touristy but fun")?

Lastly, what is the best way to get around Kanazawa efficiently? We don't mind walking but I don't have a good feel for distances in this town.
