Slip back in time as you stroll along the stone-cobbled streets of the Sanmachi Suji district, visit the riverside Miyagawa morning market, or explore the shrines that dot the surrounding hills.

From the Alps, head to the coastal town of Kanazawa, often called 'Little Kyoto'. A half-day tour in Kanazawa is included, to discover the best of this old Samurai town which has one of the finest Japanese Gardens in the country and a castle being restored to its former glory.
