TravelPod Member ReviewsMurataya Ryokan Kanazawa
When you want to feel real Japanese house atmosphere, you should stay here. The location is in the city center, very convenient, closed to restaurants and shops. The son speaks English well and advised us places to visit.

We ended up buying some French (yeah really, no joke) shoes but made in Japan ;) Today we were ready for some old houses and ancient ...
... spaciousness, seclusion, artifice, antiquity, watercourses and panoramas. I will use the B word yet again ;) it was Beautiful :). There are gingko trees that are more than 3m high (and those trees are very slow growers), pine trees, lanterns, bridges, more trees, even more trees, ...
