Higashi Geisha District

It was constructed by a feudal lord Maeda about 200 years ago as an entertainment spot for merchants.  Geisha houses were kind of like exclusive night clubs for rich guys.   


This is a typical geisha house called Shima.  When you open these sliding doors, the waiting room becomes a stage.  Geisha used to perform here while the guests enjoyed their meals.


Gold Leaf

 Over 99 percent of the gold leaf made in Japan is made in Kanazawa.  A high level of technical experience is required to make it very thin.  This soft ice cream is pretty popular among tourists.
