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.

... in coming here and staying in this hotel is that we are right next door to a fish market. I didn't know what to expect with that but it is much more than a fish market - not only can you buy umbrellas but there are numerous restaurants. As soon as we got off the bus from the train station we went to the fish market for lunch.
