Best Things To Do in Japan: Take a Shinkansen to Kanazawa

A Shinkansen (or the bullet train) is Japan’s pride! Known for its outline, safety, punctuality, and high speed; these trains travel at speeds over 200 kilometres an hour, connecting the capital city to the other important cities. Tokyo and Kanazawa are directly connected by the JR Hokuriku Shinkansen. As one of the most well-preserved Edo-era cities of Japan, Kanazawa is known for its aesthetic Kenroku-en, the cultural Kanazawa Castle Park, and the cultural Higashi Chaya District among many other lovely sites.
