It's capital, Kanazawa City, was spared during World War 2, leaving many well preserved architectural structures, making Kanazawa City an official Important Cultural Landscape spot. The most famous places in Kanazawa City is the Kenrokuen Garden, Kanazawa Castle (under restoration), and Ishikawa-mon. Kanazawa City has many Edo Period structures, including a famous Geisha Houses, Oyama-jinja, and Myoryuji Temple. The area is renowned for it's Kanazawa-Haku, or paper-thin sheets of gold. This gold leaf can be found all over Kanazawa City, and Ishikawa Prefecture (even in some foods!), and 99% of Japan's high-quality gold leaf comes from Ishikawa Prefecture.
