You arrive. You leave. Or you could leave and then arrive later, but that conundrum would be like solving whether the chicken or the egg came first. Big, Huge, Modern. Lots of glass and steel. Not much else to say, except to Trainspotters, and I don't speak their language

If you arrive by train, take the time to look at the station. It’s very interesting architecture and some delightful details to seek out. Don’t miss the fountain that tells the time and other artistic gems.

Truly wonderful architecture that blends modern style with respect for tradition. From a distance, the contours of Kanazawa Station resemble a Samurai helmet, a testament to Japanese attention to detail. There is so much to say about it from the drum-like legs of the Tsuzumi-mon gate, to the traditional crafts such as washi paper found in different parts of the station, to the shinkansen platforms where the pillars are decorated with gold leaf, to the simple but lovely water garden outside. As if that isn’t enough there is some of the best shopping and food/restaurants to be found here too! Kanazawa Station is beautiful, impressive, well planned and very convenient for travellers.
