Experience exquisite meals and local traditions in the “Country Ruled by Peasants”
Located in southwest Ishikawa Prefecture, Komatsu prospered in the days of yore as the center of old-time Kaga Province. It is blessed with natural features, such as sacred Mount Haku and the Sea of Japan. A revolt that began in 1487 led to the century-long rule of Kaga Province by peasant farmers, during which time Hoonko cuisine was developed. Komatsu also possesses a unique tea culture that includes cha-kaiseki, a meal served at a tea ceremony, which has been passed down to the present.
