What you'll do

Are you interested in visiting Kanazawa's lesser-known local attractions, not just the TripAdvisor attractions? Are you excited to cycle and walk in and around Kanazawa City? Are you curious to learn the good, the bad and the ugly about living in Japan? Then keep reading! Take this tour and I'll show you the best parts of Kanazawa City. A city rich in history and culture, I'll explain it all as we walk and cycle through it's beautiful and ancient streets. I'll explain to you my interpretations of Japanese culture, having lived here for as long as I have, as well as having lovely Japanese (almost) in-laws. Our tour will start at the spectacular modern Kanazawa Station. We'll walk in to the city centre from here. We'll visit the top attractions and as we do so, I'll explain the story of Kanazawa - I think you'll be surprised! After this, we'll grab our rental bikes and have a fun ride around town and the suburbs. This part of our tour will almost exclusively be parts of Kanazawa you're very unlikely to visit or find by yourself. The last part of which we'll see us stopping for some delicious matcha overlooking the southern river, with the mountains in the background. From here, I'll bring you back to your destination of choice to end the tour. If your desired dates aren't available on the calendar, please write me a message. I may be able to offer the tour then! Safe travels

Jonathan

Hi there! I'm an Irish triathlete who has called Kanazawa home for 4 years. I used to be an English teacher for the government, but now I'm a full time professional tour guide. Whilst in university, I majored in history, with a focus on medieval Japanese history (it's much like Game of Thrones, minus the dragons). I also act as a bespoke route planner for foreign cyclists of all fitness levels visiting Japan. I came to Kanazawa in 2015 & very quickly fell in love with this city. As a cyclist, I love it. As a student of history, I absolutely love it. My passion, my goal, what excites me, is to teach and to show guests all of the fantastic things I'm sure they would 1) love to see, but 2) never ever find by themselves. Let's have fun!

Where you'll be

More tips

The tour is a mixture of walking and cycling. If the weather is poor (i.e. raining cats and dogs), we'll potential exclude the bikes altogether. Instead, we'll walk to the sites and attractions located primarily in and around the city centre.
