Kanazawa, meaning 'Golden Marsh', was originally built around Kanazawa castle and the beautiful garden Kenrokuen. Today, the capital of Ishikawa Prefecture continues to cultivate the arts and contains attractive areas of well-preserved samurai and geisha teahouses. Its modern face is ably represented by the impressive 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art. This is the one place you should not miss on the Sea of Japan coast.
