A trip to Kanazawa, Ishikawa by helicopter

This time, I will introduce you to a trip by helicopter. The journey from Kyoto to Kagawa, Ishikawa, by helicopter takes approximately one hour. Using a helicopter, you can make a day trip from the Kansai area to the Hokuriku area, and you will have plenty of time to explore the sights on your journey. This travel plan is just one example of how you can travel by special means at a low cost. 

-About Kanazawa, Ishikawa-

The city of Kanazawa, which flourished as a castle town, is blessed with tourist attractions such as Kenrokuen Garden, one of the three most famous gardens in Japan, and Higashi Chaya-machi, which retains a small Kyoto-style landscape. In addition, since the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen in 2015, the situation in Kanazawa and its surrounding tourist areas has become more active. The "Drum Gate" at Kanazawa Station, the new symbol of Kanazawa City, and delicious seafood delicacies attract many visitors to the city.


It takes two and a half hours to travel from Kyoto Station to Kanazawa Station by Thunderbird. It takes about one hour by helicopter, so you can enjoy the following places on a day trip and still have plenty of time to spend in Kanazawa.

As you walk the 2.5km scenic route from Kanazawa Station to Kenrokuen Garden, you can find tourist attractions such as the Omi-machi Market, known as the kitchen of Kanazawa, and Oyama Shrine, where you can enjoy the atmosphere of Kanazawa.

This time, we visited these places.

・The Motenashi Dome in front of Kanazawa Station

・Nagisa Driveway

・Higashi Chayamachi

・Seafood restaurants 

I will introduce them in detail in my next blog.


Here is a summary of Kanazawa. It's not the easiest place to get to on a day trip, but it's such a wonderful and interesting place to visit by helicopter in one hour from the centre of Kyoto and Osaka. We are keen to offer more people the chance to travel in a special way, using a special means of transport. Normally, the price per person for a helicopter costs 200,000 yen. For example, someone might say, "I'm going to pay that much for transport, so I'm not going to pay too much for hotels, meals, etc. at the destination." If that is the case, Kyoto Plus has been planning the trip with the help of Takumi Airlines and Yui, so that we can provide a wonderful experience not only for the means of transportation but also for the destination. The cost of a helicopter charter is a third of the market price and you can have a wonderful travel experience.

We hope that you will make the most of your time and experience this worthwhile experience by helicopter.
