... br> Right next to the garden is Kanazawa Castle. It originally dates back to 1546, although the current buildings date from the 1700s-1800s.

To the theme music of the movie 'Jaws' I must tell you that my stomach is back to normal and I have my appetite back! Breakfast looked rather mundane but was a delicious mix of asian and asian style western. The Hida Plaza Hotel was the nicest place in town and appropriately called an 'international' hotel. Western style rooms with only 7 foot ceilings and low doorways. The village is very pretty especially because we are high in the mountains, so everywhere the ...
