    ... 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. We then took a walk to a nearby street which is the Geisha centre, though I think it's primarily restaurants and tourist activities these days. ...

    ... the gateway to the Japanese alps. The houses and yards were delicate and Japanese, just like calendar photographs. But I was surprised at how common it is to have a private rice paddy. 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.

    ... rare because maintaining the roof-tops costs 300,000$ to replace every 30 years (and most people would rather not pay such a hefty price). The ancient village was lovely and quiet, filled with cherry blossoms and surrounded by an avocado-coloured river and lofty hills. There are only perhaps three dozen structures, so you can easily navigate the village in a few hours, and have time in inspect it all. We walked around the small streets (avoiding the ...
