Kanazawa Station was originally just for JR (Japan Railway) trains only, but it has been much busier since the Shinkansen bullet train line connecting Tokyo with Kanazawa began in 2015. Kanazawa is the center of Ishikawa Prefecture. It has several sightseeing spots, such as Kanazawa Castle, Kenrokuen garden and natural hot springs. So, Kanazawa expects more visitors from both Japan and overseas. In addition, please don’t forget to get a map of Kanazawa City for your trip. You can get it at Tourist Information Center at Kanazawa Station.
