Kanazawa

Once, Kanazawa was among the four most developed cities in Japan, it even competed with Tokyo and Kyoto. It is located by the Sea of Japan in the central part of the Japanese archipelago and offers its guests a lot of historical sights. The city spared destruction during World War II. First of all, you should see the Buddhist temple Ninja-dera built in the middle of the 17th century. Tourists are attracted by Kanazawa castle erected in the 16th century. It was burnt in 1881 and renovated in modern times. Only the gates, built at the end of the 18th century, remained original. Kenrokuen Garden is the largest in the city and is among the three most famous parks in the country. It was founded in the 17th century.
