Kanazawa's art and craft

This is the nickname I gave to a city where beauty and the arts have a golden quality, the second Florence, but in Japan. We will also visit places that enhance local craftsmanship

One of the strong points of Kanazawa are the gold deposits, this has allowed the city to sustain itself and where there is abundance there is always room for the arts*
