KANAZAWA WHERE TRADITIONAL CHARMS CROSS

Kanazawa has hidden charms of Japanese tradition like Kyoto.
Located in the northern part, you can experience another tide of culture
and great food.

Here are the photos I took when touring around last weekend.
Hope you enjoy them!

Samurai former residence called ''Nomura-ke'' (Michelin Guide 2stars★★)
 

Another, and the best place to visit ''Kenrokuen''' (Michelin Guide 3stars★★★)
The huge garden of the old castle. Impressive in all parts, there is also a
panoramic view of the city. Irises and azaleas were flowering. Beautiful beyond words.

''21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art Kanazawa''
The city is a mix of old and new. At this museum, you can enjoy the
modern architecture and art works like Leandro Erlich's ''The Swimming Pool''
A layer of water is suspended over transparent glass, and under the ground
there's aquamarine empty space that viewers can enter.

 ''Higashi-Chaya district''
Traditional culture still remains remarkably in Kanazawa.
This area gives a perspective into the Geisha and a treat to walk around
the alleys of tea houses.
By the way, Geisha is not a prostitute as people often think.
''Gei'' means a skill and ''sha'' refers to a professional person. So geishas
are performers who dance or play music.

Kanazawa is also a city of handcrafts and performing arts.
The Hokuriku Shinkansen (a high-speed railway line) has started operating
from Tokyo, now the trip to Kanazawa is booming for the overseas tourists.

In 2009, Kanazawa became a member of UNESCO as a city of creativity and
culture. www.kanazawa-tourism.com
