Port of Kanazawa

Kanazawa Port is located around the center of Japan, on the Sea of Japan side, providing easy access to South Korea, Russia and China. This makes it a great destination for cruises along the Sea of Japan. Kanazawa Port has three wharfs, being able to accommodate a 140,000-ton cruise ship. Hokuriku area, of which Kanazawa is the commercial core, ranked number 4 in the world-renowned guidebook Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2014 top region. The first of the long-anticipated Hokuriku Shinkansen (bullet trains) will roll into town in March 2015, drastically slashing the travel time to/from Tokyo, therefore there will be limitless possibilities of optional tours, even a day trip to Tokyo, fly & cruise and rail & cruise.

Another strong point of Kanazawa Port is that it is a mere 5 km (4.5 miles) away from the heart of the city, only 20 minutes by bus. Kanazawa and its surrounding area are well-known for a number of fascinating tourist attractions, such as Kenrokuen Garden which has a three star rating in the Michelin Guide Book, as well as prestigious crafts, performing arts, outstanding food culture, healing hot springs and impeccable hospitality. You are sure to find the real Japan here.
