Kanazawa Light-up Bus : For a nighttime stroll in Kanazawa!

Every Saturday night, a bus runs to 16 major light-up spots in Kanazawa City. You can enjoy the night view of Kanazawa from the bus window, but why don't you get off at the bus stop and enjoy walking around Kanazawa at night? You can enjoy a different view from the daytime.


After visiting the illuminated spots, stop by a bar or izakaya where you can use your "Gourmet Ticket Kanazawa Bimi" to further enjoy Kanazawa at night.
