Two days in Tsuruoka was 1.5 too many, and after a full day of travel to Kanazawa I’m ready to leave it too. But tomorrow I’ll spend the day in a valley full of old, thatch-roofed farm houses, and the day after I’ll head to Kyoto to meet Zack and Susanna with the chattiest glee. Some pictures (out of order because the app says so):
Kanazawa was not bombed during the war and is full of old buildings
I believe this post will appear with many a glitch as the app is clearly crabby. But that’s alright, perhaps even fitting! Today marks the halfway point of this trip. I arrived in Kanazawa and the grandmother of the man who runs the guesthouse turned on sumo so we could all watch. I asked if she had a favorite wrestler and she said Yes, Endo, from Kanazawa.
