Kanazawa: The Hub City of Ishikawa

Kanazawa is the prefectural capital of Ishikawa. Most of tourists land this city anyway to plan where to go. It has a population of approximately 462,500, and one of the core cities in Chubu (central Japan). There are many historical places people boast, but not so many modern industries. Some old townhouses in historical districts are protected by low, and local people prevent themselves from losing their traditions.
