This fantastic prize includes return economy class flights for two from London to Komatsu (via Tokyo) with JAL, a six-night private stay in a traditional Japanese-style house based in Kanazawa from Japan Experience, and a welcome greeting from your “travel angel”, who will be able to provide you with advice and assistance regarding your Kanazawa adventure.
Kanazawa is nestled against the Sea of Japan on one side and mountain ranges on the other, with a strong historic connection that is still clearly visible in the city today. Travellers can explore Nagamachi – the ancient samurai district, where the historic residences of former clans still remain in narrow lanes awash with earthen walls.
Meanwhile Myoryuji Temple, more commonly known as ‘Ninjadera’ (Ninja Temple), complete with hidden tunnels, secret rooms and traps, will teach visitors the cunning means of defence adopted by the samurai warriors in times of shogun rule. Combined with a visit to the Higashi Chaya District, which retains all its former charm as an entertainment area inhabited by geisha, travellers can find all the necessary remnants to piece together a clear image of the Japan of days gone by.
Today, expect to find the attractions of old Japan mixed in with the new and upcoming, as recognised in the city’s 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art. The elegance of Japan’s most famous garden, Kenroku-en, is also not to be missed.
