Seeking the Samurai Course

The Half-Day Course lets you get glimpses of the lifestyles of samurai from all ranks, from the lowliest foot soldiers to the richest retainers of the Maedas. The Full-Day Course adds the Myoryuji (nicknamed the Ninja Temple) and the Maeda Tosanokami-ke Shiryokan Museum, both of which have connections with the Maeda lords of Kanazawa.
