What you'll do

Meet me in front of Starbucks in Tokyu Square (very close to many major sights of interests). We will go explore the biggest night town in Kanazawa! I will show you three different areas all loved by locals. Start from the crowded area and then go to the narrow streets where the real locals go. I will introduce you to a couple of izakaya bars which you would never find if you are by yourself!! I will help you communicate with the owner and other customers! And then I can make a few recommendations if you would like to try another place.

Born and raised in Kanazawa. Spent 6 years in the U.S. for school and work so If you speak English...or Japanese then do not worry about the communication! I am a certified English guide in Kanazawa, who is enthusiastic about food and drinks! Prefers small and friendly Izakaya bars where locals gather. Knows a lot of tiny places where only 7 - 10 seats are available and filled with regular local customers. Are you looking for a night feeling like a local? Then here you go! You found me!! Or are you a crafty person? Kanazawa is full of arts and crafts of the old and the new. Let’s explore!!

Where you'll be

Most of the bars we are going to visit have only 7 - 10 seats. If you are expecting top of the notch services and super nice food then this might not fulfill your needs. But if you are looking for something very local and unique then this is it!!!

Our tour with Kana was wonderful. We came to Kanazawa specifically to try the famous snow crab, and she turned this into reality. We went to a local izakaya and had our pick of the litter with various snow crab options. The staff there were so friendly and entertained our desire to photograph everything! Everything we tried was delicious and Kana was very hospitable and friendly in showing us her native town! We also learned a lot of fun facts about Kanazawa, Japan, and the fishing industry! Thank you again Kana!

Our group absolutely loved the guided bar hop tour with Kana. We were taken to some areas that we would never have found on our own. Definitely a highlight of our trip through Japan, mixing with locals and bar owners with our personal guide made for a special fun filled night, full of stories and laughter.. a must do for anyone visiting Kanazawa.

Kana was great. She has so much knowledge of Kanazawa, it’s food scene and Japanese traditions. The experience gave me a deeper understanding of Japanese cuisine.

We absolutely LOVED our tour with Kana! It was one of our favorite nights of the entire trip. We wanted something that felt truly local and Kana gave us just that. She took us to a few tiny izakaya spots that we would have never found or been able to go to without speaking the language. She gave us amazing recommendations on the local sake and dishes and all were incredibly unique and unlike anything we’d ever tried. Being a true Kanazawa expert, Kana also helped with great itinerary suggestions for the rest of our stay. If you’re looking for a uniquely local experience and are excited to try food that extends beyond typical Japanese cuisine, book this tour with Kana!

We had a lot of fun! Kana brought us to places we wouldn't have gone otherwise - it was a private tour and it really felt like hanging out with friends for a night! Would do it again in a heartbeat!
