One of Japan's most celebrated gardens - Kenroku-en - is the place to visit in Ishikawa Prefecture. Around the garden is the '21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa', the most popular art museum by attendance in Japan. Relics from the past can be found in the city of Kanazawa like Kanazawa Castle, former samurai residences, the old streets of Chayagai, and so on. These places are a perfect opportunity for photos. For food, as well as fresh seafood caught from the Sea of Japan, the area is well known for its high-end local Kaga vegetables. For those looking for a gift to bring back, traditional handcrafted Kaga Yuzen or Wajima-nuri are must buy items.
