Kanazawa, Ancient Architecture

Kanazawa was spared bombing during WWII. Many old structures remain. A few areas have blocks of preserved structures. Much has been torn down and replaced with modern structures. Following are a few photos of these areas.20180628_145825

We went inside an old teahouse where geishas entertained rich men with music, dance and tea ceremonies.

The hot new thing in Kanazawa is a soft serve ice cream cone covered with a sheet of 22K gold leaf,  which is edible. Guess gold prices are down. These cone go for about 10 USD. These were selling everywhere.

Tomorrow, after another surprise Japanese breakfast, we will walk from our trusty Hotel Trusty to Kanazawa Castle and gardens. Only 3 blocks away.
