    Behold the architecture in two isolated villages that UNESCO found so unusual that it deemed them World Heritage sites. The villages of Shirakawago and Gokayama are in the remote Shogawa River Valley surrounded by high rugged mountains, a location that made them difficult to access for centuries.


    To cope with the abundance of snow that falls there, the residents constructed farmhouses with steeply pitched thatched roofs to reduce the amount of snow that accumulates on them. The roof design also allows for large attics, in which the residents rear silkworms, which they feed leaves from the surrounding mulberry trees. Only one other nearby village boasts this type of architecture, known as gassho-zukuri, a style that means “constructed like hands in prayer.”


    Following free time in both villages, you will watch a demonstration of paper-making in Gokayama. The specialized washi paper is exceptionally colorful and patterned. The fiber for it comes from mulberry trees.

    Gain a remarkably comprehensive understanding of Kanazawa through a wide diversity of attractions, beginning with the Omicho Market. Established in 1721, Omicho is the city’s largest and surely liveliest market with nearly 200 shops selling everything from seafood to flowers to confections. Best of all, many of the stores offer samples.


    The atmosphere will be more serene at Kenrokuen, an oasis that was once the outer gardens of Kanazawa Castle. It is a magnificent setting no matter what the season, as you will discover while strolling the meticulously landscaped grounds.


    For a glimpse into modern Kanazawa, you will browse the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, an architectural masterpiece of minimalism that is as provocative as the artwork inside. Higashi Chaya is the city’s largest district of teahouses where geishas performed songs and dances. Although some of the teahouses are still active, the majority of them have been converted into fine restaurants and coffee shops.

    Visit three of the most definitive attractions in Kanazawa, which together will provide you with a historical perspective of this intriguing city.


    Considered one of the finest gardens in Japan, Kenrokuen was constructed over nearly two centuries by the ruling Maeda family. Designed to maximize its water features and scenic views, the gardens lie in the shadow of Kanazawa Castle. The Maeda family founded the castle even earlier and although it was destroyed by fire twice, much of it has been reconstructed using traditional techniques and materials. The turrets, the storehouse that connects them and the main gate are especially interesting, as they now appear exactly as they did in the 1850s.


    Omichi Market is just as historically important, as it was created 300 years ago. It remains one of the city’s liveliest markets with displays of every type of food imaginable, although seafood is the specialty. Be sure to try whatever samples are offered.

    Spend hours in the mountain village Shirakawago, exploring at your own pace and staying as long as you like at the attractions you find most interesting. The village is best known for its farmhouses with thatched roofs that are so steep that they look like hands clasped in prayer. This gassho-zukuri style is more than an architectural curiosity; it keeps much of the heavy snow from accumulating, especially since the houses are oriented to maximize the sunlight. The roof design also leaves space for bigger attics, which the residents use to breed silkworms.


    As you meander about, you will see the mulberry trees that supply the silkworms’ preferred food of mulberry leaves. UNESCO declared Shirakawago a World Heritage site because of the rare architecture, which was created to adapt to the natural environment. If you wish to shop, Shirakawa Kaido Street is an excellent starting point, as it is lined with stores selling merchandise unique to the village’s remote location.

    Explore the historical side of Kanazawa, much of it centered around the castle that was once the seat of the powerful Maeda clan. Although the castle burned down twice, the samurai district located at the foot of the castle still remains.


    As you walk through the atmospheric neighborhood, you will see homes where the descendants of the samurai now live and browse the former residence of a samurai that served the Maedas. Kanazawa also boasts a district where geishas were trained and performed songs and dances in teahouses. Some of the teahouses are still used for their original purpose, but most of them have been converted into restaurants and shops.


    There is also a connection between the Maedas and Kenrokuen Gardens, as the clan developed the serene oasis next to the castle. The gardens were designed around ponds and waterfalls, and they are as magnificent today as they were when laid out, starting in 1620.

    Watch the traditional art of gold leaf-making, a process in which artisans pound gold into super-thin sheets that are used to decorate handicrafts, sculptures and even temples in larger installations.


    The production of gold leaf began in Kanazawa in the 16th century as part of the ruling Maeda family’s push to encourage the development of arts and crafts. It is still a thriving art, as you will see by watching artisans make gold leaf through a precise process that involves a rolling mill, special paper and instruments to pound the gold. The finished product is so thin that you can see light through it and so delicate that static electricity in the air can tear it.


    You can try your hand at making gold leaf and later at making wagashi, a traditional confection from bean paste that melts in the mouth. Wagashi is often shaped like animals and used in tea ceremonies, as it respects the balance of bitter and sweet.
