Overview
In Japan, fish auctions take place early in the morning. Here at Kanazawa Fishing Port, there are only a few fish auction venues in Japan. The tour can be enjoyed by small children. Experts will explain the types of fish caught in this fishing port and the fishing methods. You can explore a huge refrigerator to freeze fish that can only be experienced on this tour. And you can eat freshly landed fish at restaurants where only local residents can go.

What a great idea. Our guides were local graduate students who gave us a unique (and entertaining) look at Kanazawa. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and good company. We had hoped to do a "behind the scenes" tour of the nighttime fishing wharf when the catch comes in and is sold. Darn that Typhoon! The fisherman stayed home because of high seas, so instead we got a tour of nighttime Kanazawa, which we really enjoyed.

We were 6 people, visiting Kanazawa for the first time and fortunately we had our guide Tetsu who was excellent in showing us the most seaworthy places and answering all our questions. Look for this guide when you plan a visit to this beautiful city.

Guilherme was a great guide. He came to meet us at the main Kanazawa JR station. We visited tea shops, sweet stores, and a porcelain shop among others. All of this while visiting the samurai and the geisha districts. He went beyond his program described on the website in order to accommodate our wishes to see or try new things. He also helped us by explaining not only the history of the places we visited but gave us recommendations for other things to do, shop and places to eat. After we got off the bus to be back to the initial meeting place, we completed the sightseeing by walking from one site to another. We finalized the tour by taking the bus back to the train station. It was very convenient to have someone guide us through basic things that can be overwhelming during the first day in a new town such as paying the bus fare.

My friends and I joined the Kanazawa Port tour. We really loved it because it was super unique and felt like an authentic look at day-to-day Kanazawa life. Our guides met us at Kanazawa Station and then we rode together to the port. Local University Students gave us a tour of the port, where we got to learn about different types of fish, do a scavenger hunt, and go into the biggest and coldest freezer I have ever seen. Afterwards, we ate Kanazawa seafood that had been caught the same day. Sitting down to chat over a meal was the best part of the experience. I would definitely recommend if you love seafood!!
