Grab a seat at Marais D’or for Western and Japanese dishes and drinks, or swing by Kincharyou for acclaimed Kaga cuisine overlooking the surrounding gardens and cityscape.
Marais D’or — Home to a chic bar, intimate lounge, and all-day dining, Marais D’or boasts a breakfast buffet complete with Western and Japanese options, as well as French favorites served throughout the day.
Kincharyou — Kaga cuisine is paired with panoramic city and garden views at the hotel’s third floor hotspot. Deep fried seafood and vegetable tempura are a few of the signature items.
Kenrokuen Garden — The crown jewel of the Kanazawa Castle grounds is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. Saunter along ancient walkways and stone bridges through plum groves, cherry blossoms, waterfalls, and historic fountains. A few of our favorite stops are the historic teahouse built in 1774, Yūgao-tei, and the red-stone Flying Geese Bridge. For a serene stroll, we suggest heading to the garden in the morning hours before the crowds arrive.
21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art — This can’t-miss, cylindrical glass building honors works produced by Japanese and international artists. Leandro Erlich's ‘Swimming Pool’ and James Turrell's ‘Blue Planet Sky’ put the museum in a class of its own. For a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, be sure to head “underwater” at the ‘Swimming Pool’.
Omicho Market — This bustling market, dating back to the Edo period, is known for its Kaga vegetables and fresh seafood. While exploring the stores is a fantastic way to pass the time, we suggest stopping by one of the many eateries to sample the signature rice bowls topped with fresh Kanazawa seafood.
