Christmas dinner

Is there a KFC in Kanazawa? I understand that eating fried chicken at KFC on Christmas is a Japanese tradition. I will be there on Christmas and would like to "do as the Romans (or Japanese) do."

There appears to be a KFC in Kanazawa, but it would be a hike from the nearest train station, not the worst thing if you're eating KFC:


Christmas is likely to be their busiest day of the year. You might have to reserve your meal in advance; someone local might know for sure. Or just go for the ambience and excitement and take your chances on whether they'll have any non-reserved meals.

2 Locations. Please refer to KFC official website. Closest one to Kanazwa Station is 12 minute on foot, 1 km.


Copy and paste the address to google maps if you want English map and directions. Or better yet, use Google Maps to search for "KFC Kanazawa, Japan". Granted in this case, both locations are still in business. Google Maps often list shops that are permanently closed..

Those KFC's are super busy on Dec 25th. Long lineups, and people reserve those meals weeks in advance.

Don't forget the Christmas cake!
