Explore Kanazawa with an experienced local guide


Kanazawa lies on the northwest of the mainland. Abundant with samurai culture, history, nature and warm people, it is known as” a hidden jewel off the beaten path”. We are experienced local guides who know the nuts and bolts of the town:  old townscapes, idyllic countryside, local pubs&restaurants and unique local food. Explore a unique town with us !

We are all men and women who enjoy retirement and work as a tour guide. We not only do the sights of the town but would like to talk about our younger days, our families, hobbies etc. All inquiries welcome! We would like to provide unique experiences based on your interests.

Please advise of any interests you may want to explore in greater depth than is usually available in other tours.

For example, if you like sashimi or sushi,

we can take you to the morning auction in the market, if you like tofu, then we can take you to tofu makers.
