Discovering Japanese traditional culture

Once ruled by some of ancient Japan’s most powerful feudal clan lords, the area of Kaga prides itself on having successfully managed to preserve its traditional culture and historical heritage which is pervasive everywhere and especially in local crafts, historical townscapes, performing arts and colorful festivals. But rather than just eye-witnessing it, why not taking advantage of your stay in Kaga to experience yourself a few of the truly authentic elements of Japan’s traditional culture.
