Kanazawa JOG NAVI, a website for mobile use, is now released for you to enjoy sightseeing while doing your jogging and walking exercises. The site is with 8 recommended routes from hotel concierge and spot-searching functions. Let’s get up a bit earlier and move your bodies in the gorgeous city and the nature of Kanazawa!
Approximately 30 minutes by car from the city center of Kanazawa there is an area called “Kanazawa no Oku-zashiki” (the meaning of which is a place where one can spend quiet time away from the noise of Kanazawa) which is home to the Yuwaku Onsen Hot Spring.
Recently, it has become the stage for the anime “Hanasaku-Iroha“, and the “Yuwaku Bonbori Matsuri” festival held in October every year is crowded with many anime fans. In 2018 the Yuwaku Onsen Hot Spring will celebrate its 1300th anniversary since its opening and various events are planned to be held. Be sure to come and spend a relaxing time in this calm atmosphere!
There are many temples scattered around Kanazawa. Among them, there are three interesting temple areas called Ishibiki-no-michi (Kodatsuno temple area), Shizune-no-komichi (Teramachi temple area), Spiritual Path (Utatsuyama temple area).
Please be sure to experience a stroll through the streets lined with beautiful temples, which are filled with ancient history and atmosphere.
