After spending 23 days in scenic Kyoto, Mrs. Selfish and I packed our bags and boarded a train for Kanazawa, a delightful city on the northern coast of Japan.
Kanazawa was home to the second most powerful clan in Japan during the Edo period and was one of the bigger cities to come out of World War II largely in tact. As a result, Kanazawa is a beautiful city with a number of historic buildings including: Kanazawa castle, the ninja temple, samurai houses, and a historic geisha district.
Kanazwa is also home to one of Japan’s three best landscaping gardens, and arguably some of the best sushi in Japan. While I’d like to tell you we went for the culture, the sushi played a large role in our decision making.
That is until I saw pictures of our ryokan.
