Meeting time and place
During the Edo period(1603-1867),Kanazawa flourished as a castle town of
the Kaga Clan. The lord Maeda,the second biggest after the Tokugawa shogunate,
ruled the Kaga Domain for almost 300 years. Many traditional arts and crafts
developed and flourished under the sponsorship and encouragement of the
Maeda ruling. Even now, lots of historic sites,and arts and crafts worth
visiting remain here.They are Kenrokuen garden,Kanazawa castle enclosure,pottery,lacquer-ware,gold
leaf,Yuzen silk dyeing. Kanazawa is a gastronomic city,too. The dishes,
which are made from fresh fish landed from the Japan Sea and locally produced
vegetables, taste very good.
