Kanazawa is another city known as "little Kyoto". (Just how many of them are there?). Capital of Ishikawa prefecture, it was one of the few major cities in Japan spared from U.S. bombing runs in World War Two. As a result, it boasts some picturesque historical areas in the centre of the city where it was a real treat to walk beside canals flanked by old wooden houses.

Kanazawa is the first stop on my short summer camping trip, also stopping on a beach north of Kanazawa, Lake Norijiko in Nagano, and a mountain in Niigata.
