Scent of magnificence in old days
Lens: Tamron AF 17-50mm F2.8 XR Di-II LD Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Kanazawa, Japan ISO: 160 Shutter Speed: 2s Aperture: F3.5 
Posted By: Hiro, 12-07-2014, 11:21 PM

I took this photo when staying in Kanazawa, Japan. Kanazawa is a typical historical city as well as Kyoto. Especially culture for both samurai and ordinary people flourished in the Edo era. The area in this photo prospered as watering holes. Old houses made of wood stand even today shoulder to shoulder. You can see geishas if you are lucky.

Kanazawa! I spent 6 weeks of my life there back in 2006. It has its charms, although KIT is so far outside the main drag of the city that we didn't get to experience as much on a daily basis.

Kenroku-en is just a spectacular place. I think I went there 3 or 4 times while I was there. Didn't get a chance to make it back when I visited Japan in 2012 because it's just too far up to Kanazawa from Kansai.

Looks like a great place for the photographer to explore, did you get other images you'd care to share with us?

This place is Higashi-chayagai, 15 minute walk away from the Kanazawa station. Kenroku-en is one of the most famous Japanese style garden. Kenroku-en was build for the lord and samurais. However, Higashi-chayagai was for both samurai and town people. You could find another aspect of the old city. If you have a chance to visit Kanazawa, I strongly recommend this place.

Thanks! I took many shots of the Higashi-chayagai, Kanazawa castle, the museum and so on.
I would like share several photos soon.
