Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture

Where to visit in Japan? So many places to visit. Japan has 47 prefectures and I have been to only 8 of them.Okay, 39 more to go.

We visit Kanazawa during our last January trip for a night. I like Kanazawa. They are famous for crabs and garden.

A few places we visited, one of them was Kenroku-en. We were there in end December but it hasn’t snow yet. The picture doesn’t do justice to the view. I will try to put up the video instead.

The room is small but comfortable.
