Hot Springs in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture!

Thinking of getting a short getaway from the city? Kanazawa can be a great choice! Just hop in the Hokuriku Shinkansen (bullet train) and embrace the nature, beautiful people and wonderful culture of Ishikawa's Prefecture capital.

You can also access by plane from Tokyo to Kanazawa through Haneda or Narita airport to Komatsu airport. Flight time is one hour. The regular one-way fare from Tokyo to Kanazawa is about 25,000 yen, however, discount tickets for around 10,000 to 13,500 yen are usually available too.
