Rainy Higashi Chaya District

Rainy Higashi Chaya District

[April 2012] When we visited Kanazawa, a Japanese old town, unfortunately, meteorological “bomb” was attacking the area, so we got completely soaked.

This is a picture taken when the rain was not too bad.

The wet street has special atmosphere, doesn’t it? We went into one of the traditional Chaya (tea house) and learned that the customers had to have a lot of knowledge  and refined sense to be accepted there.
