Student exchange trip to Kanazawa

  11 votes
I was previllage to be part of the group of exchange student hosted by Kanazawa Technical College in Spring of 1997, it has been a long time since the trip but I can still remember fond memories of the trip.

Kanazawa is a city, but I stayed at the suburb near to the college. The suburbs was well planned with houses surrounded by paddy fields or vegetable plots. In between 2 roads there's about 8 to 10 plots of land, and there'll be about 2-3 plots of land that is build with house, the rest is field with crops of vegetables or rice.

Favourite spots:
The Kenrokuen garden is splendid. It has the oldest fountain in Japan, being one of the best kept ancient gardens, it houses many treasures of the country in terms of garden design, plants and layout.

What's really great:
I like the people, the weather and the town. The Japanese I met there are polite, friendly and helpful. They take pride in everything that they do, it is evident by the surroundings.

Sights:
You must drive up to Nato Peninsula which is north of Kanzawa.

Accommodations:
I stayed with a family for 10 days, so not much I can recommend for hotels.
