As soon as travelers arrive in Kanazawa, they are greeted by an amazing display of technology and culture right at the station. Kanazawa Station is one of the most impressive stations in Japan with a glass dome called the “Motenashi (Welcome) Dome” at the east entrance and a wooden gate called the “Tsuzumi-mon” inspired by the Japanese instrument the tsuzumi (hand drums). An information center at the underground of the dome informs travelers the most recommended things to do in Kanazawa.
