Overall Guide : Kanazawa is a home feel tourist spot. It is excellent for family visit, safe, clean and easy transport with area for shopping, Onsen, photo-taking and enjoying the Japanese culture. The market is nice place for breakfast and lunch, no need... more to have breakfast in hotel, try the local food there, you will find it super yummy.
Not to be missed Ohmicho Market , Noto Hantou , Kenroku En
