Kanazawa Station is currently the terminus of the Hokuriku shinkansen line which is still under construction. The distinctive features of the station include a large glass dome and the iconic Tsuzumi wooden gate, symbolizing a traditional Japanese drum. The area surrounding the station features several shopping malls. A fountain clock also indicates the time as well as welcoming visitors to Kanazawa.
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
