Most Japanese I have met have never been to Kanazawa, but it was easily one of my favorite places on my trip. The old district is very well preserved and relatively tourist free, and the garden (something my mother would appreciate) was really fantastic. I certainly hope to return in the future. (Plus riding on sand is fun!)
Those drinks look so fresh and delicious. I like my pocari sweat aged to perfection (and powder)

The only beach in Japan where you can drive on the sand.

World’s biggest road sign. I think it says “Enter”.
Samurai house, pottery studio, and excellent curry restaurant.
Sweets I made in a workshop. Please don’t look too closely.
1000 rice paddies. Lack of rice made it just 1000 slightly wet holes.
Now THAT is engineering. Thank you 8 years of university!
Now isn’t that an artsy shot!

They sure know how to make it look photogenic
Impressive gate at the station
