We meet at 17:00 at our hotel in Kanazawa, the gateway to Noto Peninsula. After an introductory meeting and bike fitting, we take a leisurely walk through the city and enjoy a welcome dinner together.
Kanazawa is home to traditional high cultures and activities, such as handicrafts, tea ceremonies, Noh theatre and Kaga cooking, offering you plenty of options for cultural experiences. We recommend you arrive a day or so earlier to explore the city and surrounding areas. Kanazawa Castle, once home to the famous feudal lord Toshiie Maeda and the Kenrokuen Garden, a beautiful Japanese garden are not to be missed if you have time. Kanazawa can be reached in approximately 3.5 hours by express train from Osaka Kansai International Airport.
