Kaga is located in the prefecture of Ishikawa located between the cities of Komatsu and Fukui.
Kaga was the first city in Japan to twin with a Canadian city (Dundas which now is part of Hamilton) in 1968. Student exchanges have been occuring between Kaga and Dundas since then. When visiting Kaga, normally there are no other foreigners in the city except for the Canadians, thus you really experience Japanese life as the group lives with host families for the three or four week duration.
With Kaga being on The Sea of Japan, there is a lovely sandy beach in the Shioya section of Kaga. Beside this there is other nature’s beauty too.
