Kanazawa/Shirakawa-Go Slideshow 

10-25-2011 10:27 AM

The Crafting The Future teaser continues with some highlights of sights in Kanazawa to be visited during part 2 of the conference. A castle town like Tokyo, Kanazawa is divided into distinct neighborhoods. The area of the samurai housing, the eastern tea/entertainment district and the castle area are represented in the slideshow as well as the distinctive Kanazawa townhouses. In addition, a few sketches of the rural village of Shirakawa-Go give an idea as to what awaits tour attendees as they experience venacular architecture of the Edo period. Buildings include: 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Seisonkaku Villa, Kenroku-en Garden, Yugao-tei Tea House, Higashi Chaya Townhouses, Shima Tea House, Hakuza Tea House, Gassho style Minka.
