Getting to Ishikawa
Ishikawa Prefecture is a part of Honshu, Japan’s largest and most populated island. It is bordered by the Sea of Japan to the north, Toyama to the east, Gifu to the south, and Fukui to the west. It is part of the Hokuriku region, which also includes Toyama and Fukui prefectures.
The main gateway to Ishikawa is its capital, Kanazawa. Bullet trains run from Tokyo to Kanazawa Station. Limited express trains run from Kyoto, Osaka, and Nagoya. Shirakawa-go, a village in Gifu famous for its thatched roof architecture, is a short bus ride or drive from parts of Ishikawa. The prefecture is served by two airports: Komatsu and Noto Satoyama.
