... headed west yesterday as we are not in the area where the typhoon is expected, which is more to the east. It is raining heavily here and that will curtail today's activities but by the time we head to Osaka by train tomorrow it should be clear.

... The rain came, which was normal since the area has rain 200 days a year. We spent the afternoon on the ship.

Back to base checked out the underground garden at the train station, a rest ...

Shirakawa and Gokayama are two quaint villages about an hour drive from Kanazawa in the heavily forested mountains. Both have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites for their architectural style known as "gassho". They are thatched roof homes at a 60 degree angle and a thickness of almost two feet. The area gets a lot of snow in the winter so the pitch and thickness are very important. Today there are just 200 homes left, but back in the ...

Walking Tour of Kanazawa

The weather today was perfect for a walking tour of Kanazawa. The city has a nice combination of modern and traditional well blended together. In the center of the city is the Kanazawa Castle Park and the adjacent Kenrouku-en Garden. All Japanese gardens must incorporate 5 elements….ponds, waterfalls, lanterns, rocks and bridges. This one is one of the oldest dating back to the 17th century and was created for the lord Maeda Tsunanori. ...
