We enjoyed Kanazawa even though Thursday 10 April was very chilly and a little rainy. We did see some lovely sights but the best of all was the castle and the Kenrokuen gardens, which we visited on Thursday on a much better day. They have a tourist bus here for about $5 which is very convenient. We visited the fish markets first.

 We wandered in the geisha district which had lovely shops and old houses.

 There were still lots of blossoms!

 The gardens were amazing!

 The castle and the grounds were wonderful too.

 As we wandered around we saw this couple in their traditional wedding clothes.
That afternoon we headed to Kyoto and have been here now for 4 nights. Today we leave for Ngoya and then have a long day of travel tomorrow. Looking forward to being home of Thursday!
