We took a bus from Kagaonsen. It was so lovely strolling the gorge, admiring the handiwork of temples and Bridges. We were the only westerners, in fact there were very few people which was lovely. There are so many beautiful trees and plants, so many greens. Love the Japanese maple. Be sure to visit the 2500 year cypress at the gorge end. It's so stunning

We took the city bus (circular route) from JR Station and reached Nata Temple in less than 20 minutes. It was a quiet place with nice water ponds, moss lawns, pagodas, temples and rocky landscapes. We were a bit late to visit here by end of November and majority of the maple leaves turned brown and began to fall. The temple was being part of Shingon section of buddhism and the wooden structures thereat were really worth to watch and admire. The area was quite large with some of the scenic spots on top of rocky mountain, Kamisama Hill, and you could well have nice panoramic views from the observation platform on the opposite side of the hill. Visitors with physical disabilities and elderly were only recommended to walk on ground level to tour around the main temples. Highly recommend visitors to come here by chance they visit Kagaonsen region.

It curves back and forth, side to side as it crosses the river so you can't see either side from the middle. Interesting for bridge aficionados.

Did a 1.5 hour morning walk that originated from our hotel to the Korogi Bridge and went on to the river level and then to the Ayatori and Kurotani Bridges with views of the gorge and looped to the town and back to our hotel (Kagayamanaka Select Grand). Very peaceful and scenic along the river, many steps along this path, recommend that have comfortable covered shoes when doing this walk. Beautiful during autumn. We had a guide but it can be done on your own if you are the resourceful type.

Not a huge area, but one where the local tourist bus stops. Try to plan your time carefully whether to visit the Gorge or the Town. You are likely to be able to only choose either one. Best to stay in the area to maximise the visit.

I went to the Museum of Snow and Ice with my three friends on a rainy day in Ishikawa and we had so much fun. The museum is dedicated to Ukichiro Nakaya who is a famous Japanese winter scientist and writer. He started to study snow and how the flakes are formed in early 1930s. I the museum you can see some of his works as well as a model of his house and study. But the funniest part is, that they show you some of the experiments that Ukichiro Nakaya performed himself. The demonstration is lead in Japanese with not a hint of English, but even though it's great to see this kind of "magic". They even let you touch the results! There was a few kids in our group and they absolutely loved it! You can also make your own star of ice within few seconds or practise origami snow flake making.
The museum is not very big, but you could easily spend an hour or two just playing. And the building architecture is also very interesting just by itself. For a fee of 500 JPY for adult it's definitely worth a visit!

For some reason there is always a stop included at this place.
There is not a lot to do there...but Barnaby's is a new pizza and pasta place and the set lunch was very good.
If you like rabbits and souvenir shopping then you'll be ok...but if not it just adds another 30 minutes - 1 hour to your journey to or from the hotels.

My wife and I love checking out locally made products on our travels, so she decided to stop at the Kutaniyakai Museum in Kaga City. We were starving when we got into Kaga, so we drove around looking for a restaurant, but at 2pm on Saturday, there were really no choices. However, just across the street from the city library and museum there is a super-market, so we put together a little picnic and enjoyed it in the park that adjoins the museum. Lovely park and view towards the museum, which has an interesting artistic setup of V-shaped water flumes criss-crossing each other and dropping water into a creek. While sitting there, checked out the museum's web-site and found that they had a 7 minute video in English and Japanese with English sub-titles describing the history of Kutaniyaki. Really useful to watch that before going inside, as the first history section has limited English. However, the sections with the different eras of Kutaniyaki pottery manufacture had English description at the entrances, but otherwise no labels of the actual pottery, which would have been useful. The descriptions and more information is available in English on the web-site. Overall, a small but interesting museum, with a nice computer media setup at the end that let our nephew (and me...) learn about how the pottery is manufactured. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the Kaga area.
