Sakaiminato is the primary fishing port for all of Western Japan, so it's no surprise that seafood is a major attraction here. Much of the country's snow crab, which is considered a foremost delicacy around the world, hails from Sakai Port.

Keep your camera ready to capture the rows of teahouses in the historic Geisha district. Kanazawa also boasts attractive temples, a wide variety of museums and a lively market dating back to 1721.
