We had a great 8 hour walking tour in Kanazawa with our Guide Yoshie. Yoshie walked us through the major sightseeing spots in kanazawa and, despite the heavy rain, we had a great time with her. She told us about Japan's history and culture and also taught us how to do an origami's bird! We had a great time in Kanazawa and absolutely recommend this tour to everyone!
