An old castle town largely unspoiled during World War II, Kanazawa features well-preserved architecture spread across a range of districts. Serving as the seat of a powerful clan during feudal times, the city centers around the main castle gardens, with many of the primary historical attractions in Kanazawa found in the old samurai and geisha districts that surround it. The city enjoys a rich history of trade and agriculture, and has become particularly well known for its jumbo shrimp and sake. Kanazawa is in Ishikawa Prefecture.
