I had a short business trip to Kanazawa. I went for a nice run yesterday morning.
A big wooden gate on the east side of Kanazawa Station.
I visited Ohmicho Market.
A road race was on - wish I could join them.
Tentoku-in - a temple that was built in 1623 for Tamahime, the wife of the third lord of Maeda Clan that ruled the area. She was a grand daughter of Tokugawa Ieyasu,the founder of Tokugawa Shogunate.
At the entrance are Nio statues protecting the temple.
Looking at the main building from the gate.
Inside the main building.
A big mask of Tengu displayed on one of the buildings.
The beautiful garden of the temple.
Maple and moss.
I ran back along Saikawa River that flows from southeast to northwest of the city.
Senior citizens were enjoying Gateball.
Canadian Goldenrod is an invading plant - now very common in Japan.
A train crosses a bridge over the river.
A big monument on the west side of the station.
