Japan -> Kanazawa -> Nagamachi Samurai Quarter
Nagamachi Samurai Quarter    Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture

The Nagamachi Samurai Quarter is flanked by earthen-walled streets that create a picturesque area. Most of the buildings are private now, but in 1910, a shipping magnate restored the Nomura House and added part of a samurai home he owned in his hometown. Though the house isn't entirely authentic, its nice woodwork, peaceful garden, and expensive windowpanes give a glimpse into what samurai life was like.
