... Castle is about 3 ks walk, and what a sight it is. The Castle is pretty impressive, and the surrounding gardens are just as good. Lots of Cherry blossom trees blooming. Next stop is Kenrokuen Gardens. One of the top 3 in Japan, and meets all the criteria to be a number 1 garden. And i can see why.

This morning we got the "Thunderbird" train from Kyoto to Kanazawa, a city on the West coast of Japan. Kanazawa has a very regular hop-on-hop-off bus service from the train station to all the main sights of the city for a very reasonable price.
