JA­PAN

GQ (Australia) - - TASTE & TRAVEL -

First-time visi­tors should pri­ori­tise Tokyo and Ky­oto, though a new place to check out is the cas­tle city of Kanazawa, in Hon­shu. Even bet­ter, last year’s launch of the bul­let train line from Tokyo slashed travel time to two-and-a-half hours – and the line runs though the stun­ning Ja­panese Alps. Nes­tled be­tween beach and moun­tain, it’s a year­round des­ti­na­tion boast­ing deep cul­tural im­mer­sion with his­tor­i­cal houses and per­form­ing arts, where you can sight­see your way from the 17th-cen­tury Ken­rokuen Gar­dens to the 21st-cen­tury Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art. It also has the best sushi in the coun­try. kanazawa21.jp
