Living in Ishikawa
Ishikawa Prefecture, located in the Chubu region of Japan, is a notably rainy area of Japan. Its capital, Kanazawa City, was spared during World War 2, leaving many well preserved architectural structures and helping to make Kanazawa City an official Important Cultural Landscape spot. The most famous places in Kanazawa City are the Kenrokuen Garden, Kanazawa Castle, and Ishikawa-mon. Kanazawa City has many Edo Period structures, including famous Geisha Houses, Oyama-jinja, and Myoryuji Temple. The area is renowned for its Kanazawa-Haku, or paper-thin sheets of gold. This gold leaf can be found all over Kanazawa City and Ishikawa Prefecture (even in some foods!). 99% of Japan's high-quality gold leaf comes from Ishikawa Prefecture.
