There is so much good food in Kanazawa, which is near both the sea and mountains. When in Kanazawa, you'll want to prepare for the day with outstanding breakfast so you can thoroughly enjoy seeing the sites. Here are five select hotels recommended for their breakfasts.
1. Hotel Nikko Kanazawa
This is a hotel 3 minutes on foot from the Kenrokuen Exit (east exit) of Kanazawa Station that you will see ahead of you as you pass under the symbolic Tsuzumimon Gate. The buffet breakfast of Western and Japanese food in The Garden House restaurant is made with an abundance of local ingredients and is consistently highly rated on online travel sites. A must try in the buffet is the Kuruma-fu French Toast. The use of the Japanese ingredient of fu (seitan) to make the Western dish of French toast is a novelty.
