[Untitled][edit]

Where does the fact "The city is also renowned as a traditional haunt of ninjas." come from?

  • That might come from the existance of the 'Ninja-dera', the real name of which I cannot remember at the moment. It has many secret passages etc. because the lord who commisioned it fear attack while praying.

The so-called 'ninja temple' is actually Myouryuuji (妙立寺:http://www.myouryuji.or.jp/ninzyadera.html) it actually has nothing to do with ninjas. Nor is the city renowned as a traditional haunt of ninjas anyway.

some info[edit]

I don't believe there is a Noto Hanto Peninsula National Park. It's a famous tourist area, but not a park.

Kanazawa is also famous for Kutani pottery.

Lastly, how can the city be founded in 1889 yet there were Maeda rulers there since 1583. Seems to be a contradiction.

  • National Parks are setting by law, this name is 'Natural Parks Law' (自然公園法, Shizen-Kouen-Hou) , in Japan. This law aims at protecting nature from development. As telling, Peninsula of Noto is a famous tourist area. 'Parks', this law said, is 'protected areas.'
And, the Han system is abolished in 1871. See also:abolition of the han system

There is Noto Peninsula Quasi-National Park. Fg2 09:13, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

NB: the 1889 date refers to the formal incorporation of Kanazawa as a 'city' (市: shi) rather than its existence as an urban area. The term 'shi' was not used in the Edo period to describe cities.

Blyth[edit]

I think it would be relevant if someone put some information on R. H. Blyth on this page. He is a very significant person in the western interperetation of Japanese culture and lived and worked in Kanazawa for quite some time.


Additional Note by a different person: It is impossible that his house in Kanazawa was destroyed by Allied bombing as Kanazawa was completely untouched by Allied bombing.
