Travel around Hokuriku♪(with main routes)

March 25, 2019
Have you ever been to the Hokuriku area of Japan?
Popular tourist spots like "Kanazawa" and "Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route", the home of anime character, fresh seafood gourmet, shopping and beauty spots, traditional events and so on...are something you can only experience here.
Moreover, it only takes around 2 hours 30 mins by JR limited express from Osaka to Kanazawa or by Hokuriku Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kanazawa, so you can enjoy the city in just 1 day. There is discount pass that connects Tokyo~Hokuriku~Kansai for you to enjoy Hokuriku to the fullest!

It takes around 2 hours 30 mins by JR limited express Thunderbird from Shin-osaka to Kanazawa. Ride the local bus for around 10 mins and you will arrive at "Higashi-Jayagai" that is famous for the pretty street view. There are many buses roaming around the city, so you don't need to worry about transport! The "Kanazawa Loop Bus" runs in an interval of 12 mins so you can travel to the main sightseeing spots efficiently. "Kanazawa-higashi Shima" is the only tea house registered as the National Cultural Property, and is open to the public (admission: Adult 500JPY). You can rent Kimono and Yukata there♪

After that head towards the busiest street in Kanazawa, "Korinbo" to shop at the retro stores with "Showa" atmosphere. You can also enjoy delicious food there! We have enjoyed a full meal at the Kaiten Sushi store "Morimorisushi Katamachi".

Takaoka is the birthplace of Mr. Fujiko・F・Fujio, the creator of Doraemon. Therefore you can come across Doraemon in many locations in Takaoka. Among the many, we especially recommend to you "Doraemon Tram" of the Manyo/local line departing from Takaoka Station. There is cute Doraemon decoration everywhere on and outside the tram! If you post something into the Doraemon post box in the waiting room of Manyo line Takaoka Station,
you will receive a limited edition postmark of Doraemon! It is OK even for international mail!
