Did you know there was a samurai who devoted himself to his faith in Christianity? Justo Ukon was a great samurai and engineer, and beatified. While tracking his achievements, we will explore how Christianity effected Japanese society. Moreover, let’s go up to the hill and see the spectacular view of the town! Kanazawa is a very traditional town. Since we haven’t had any big earthquakes and war-damage, we can see the layers of history easily. People live in about 200-year-old houses and kids go to a kindergarten right next to a historical spot. It is the best place for visitors to feel how we adopted foreign culture. Itinerary: Meeting at Higashi Chaya Rest House (1min from Hashiba-cho bus stop) Hike to Mt. Utatsu (Christian Monument, secret valley, observation deck) for about 2hours Walk to Kenrokuen National Garden and Kanazawa Shrine (the origine of Kanazawa) Walk to Kanazawa Catholic Church (big stained glass of Justo) Total excursion ; 8km (5miles) & 4hour
I’m a licensed English tour guide in Kanazawa and giving private walking tours for 46 English speakers for last 19 months. I also love traveling around the world to meet local people. Japan is one of the most unique countries with its very isolated culture. Let’s see a little bit of our history and find out what Japanese people are. To understand our culture, Kanazawa is the best town, which is not too big, not too modern and not too much tourism.
