    No Smoking Please

    by akikonomu Written Oct 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Around many tourist spots in Kanazawa, you would find signboards advising us to be responsible smokers or not to smoke. As some of these districts (Teramachi temple, Higashi and Nishi chaya district) contain many wooden structures, we would not want to start mini bonfires with stray stubs.

    Even if you don't smoke, go read the signs. Some are almost comical. We saw one in Tokyo that read something like - The urinal doesn't smoke, don't give it a cigarette. This one in the Higashi chaya district advises you not to "hide" the stub in the drain filled with dry leaves.

    Zoo people

    Yes it’s true, there is a zoo near Kanazawa, but it’s a bit far from the city center and really not worth it. Honestly, I really hate zoos cause the animals are usually miserable and this is no exception here. Yeah, the zoo is new and much bigger than their previous effort (that is extremely sad) but it’s still just a tragic experience. All in all, I have to say that Japanese in general have a very poor outlook on animals and treat them rather shabby. Save your money and do something better.

    Slippery when wet - or just damp....

    Tree roots, Kenroku-en

    I don't know why Kanazawa's streets should feel so unsafe but they do. Even in sensible Berghaus walking shoes I nearly slipped over on countless occasions, and it wasn't pouring with rain, just drizzling and damp under foot.
