Ishikawa

Ishikawa's rich cultural heritage lives on through sites such as Kenrokuen Garden, one of Japan's largest and most famous landscape gardens, and Kanazawa Castle, a heavily fortified stronghold that was home to the powerful Maeda family from 1583 to 1871. Crafts, cuisine, tea ceremony, and Noh theater all flourished under the patronage of the Maedas, who governed Ishikawa during the Edo period (1603–1867).

A special program of events is planned for locations throughout the Ishikawa region. Highlights will include performances of traditional Japanese arts and other authentic historical experiences.
