Transportation to Kanazawa

Description

Kanazawa is one of the long overlooked jewels of Japanese tourism - although not by the Japanese, who visit in droves. Its relatively remote location, until recently off the beaten (shinkansen) track, has perhaps unfairly contributed to the historically lower number of foreign tourists. However for those travellers who want to see perhaps the best-preserved major Edo-period city in the country (along with Takayama), it is hard to beat.
