Kenrokuen Garden

One of the reasons we traveled to Kanazawa was to see Kenrokuen Garden. It is officially designated as one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. Why aren’t there officially Three Great Gardens of the United States? (Although if they were designated now, strings would undoubtedly be pulled to make one of them Mar-a-Lago.)

Kanazawa’s Omicho Market

Visiting Omicho Market was definitely one of the highlights of Kanazawa. The market is a warren of narrow covered alleys lined with up to 200 stores. Judy and I love markets generally, and this is a good one. We went there every day during our time there.

Kanazawa Castle

OK, back to Japan. We left Tokyo, going by train to the much smaller city of Kanazawa, a historic castle town. One of the gates to Kanazawa Castle.
