    First stop after breakfast this morning was the beautiful 350 year old park known as Kenrokuen Gardens. It took 125 years to "build" though about 90% of it seems quite natural. In 1676, it was originally the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle. There are large ponds, waterfalls and streams which were channeled in certain ways for specific effects. Many of the trees are very old and propped up with carefully constructed and strategically placed wooden props. Although we missed the ...

These floats may weigh more than 2 tons, and are hand pulled by however many men are required. The heaviest one has no wheels ...

    ... around the little city for an hour or so, we didn’t have any clue what to do. We were told there were buses, but we couldn’t find any. We were at least able to find a store open where we could buy some snacks and we found a quiet spot by the river to eat and wait for our train to come. Blerg. It was a long day.
