ISHIKAWA PREFECTURE

Thanks partly to the wonderful, historical city of Kanazawa, Ishikawa attracts a large number of tourists all year round. Nature lovers also hit Ishikawa for its mountains and coastal areas. For lighter crowds and staggering views from the sacred white mountain to the sea, go to Hakusan, where visitors can also take the challenge of tasting blowfish ovaries. Wajima has a morning market dedicated to local delicacies and the town’s signature lacquerware, which can also be enjoyed at two museums there.
