Very nice, but some are better in Kanazawa, still good to see.

The one reason for our visiting Kzanazawa was to see this old Samurai district. I was amazed how well preserved the whole district is. The house fronts indicate the rank and position of the Samurais living inside those houses. There were a few arts and crafts shops selling a lot of pottery, but quite expensive. A rich cultural experience.

The 16th generation of the Terashima family runs this house as a museum. they change scrolls according to the seasons. This is the only house of its kind open to the public. The roof's wooden shingles were weighted down with stones. The tatami rush mats are attached to each other with hemp or silk, if in a special place like an altar. Rooms were lit with small candles that lasted about 30 minutes. Mr. Terashima carried dried powder to mix with water and make various colors of inks for his love of painting.

This was an old area of the city where the Samurai wre housed, and it has been well preserved. There wre quite a few arts and crafts shops selling their wares, but the prices were extortionate. Still, it was worth looking at the beautiful pottery etc on display. It felt very Japanese, a good cultural experience.

This Circa 1770 house showing how the middle class warrior lived was terrific. Their way of life back in that time was not for me. However, well worth a look.
