... and Kanazawa is the centre for these artisan products. It's surprising where the gold leaf shows up .. we were given candies with a few embedded flakes, and I even saw ice cream with gold leaf decoration. I wanted to have some, but there wasn't time to find the shop. I believe it's considered to have medicinal qualities when consumed.

As we would have a side yard of lawn, frequently we saw side plots of newly planted rice. I have been told that a family will normally consume the contents of three paddies in a year.
