In Kanazawa, the rainy season  usually lasts for about one month from mid June.
We started preparation for the rainy season.
I think that cleaning is the most common way used to protect human body from humidity.

Kanazawa Hyakumangoku Matsuri Festival

kanazawa Ryokan Onsen Inn Samurai ninjya Higashicyaya cheap Takayama Shirakawago Matsumoto
11:30AM 17th May sunny

Back to the Edo period!
Kanazawa Hyakumangoku Matsuri is the biggest annual festival in the region.
Many events are held over a period of three days in June.
It first started in 1952 to praise the great work of the first lord, Toshiie Maeda, and was derived from an old municipal event.
Now, it’s getting bigger and bigger, becoming well-known as a typical show of Kanazawa culture.
You can see families applauding their kids or parents in antique-looking costumes, couples being served Matcha green tea at the Hyakumangoku tea ceremony at Kenrokuen, or local employees dancing in their summer Kimono.
Every year, people are always looking forward to enjoying these three days!

“Kaga Yuzen Tohro-Nagashi” Floating Lanterns 3rd June 19:00~21:00

1,500 Tohro lanterns with lovely Kaga-Yuzen patterns will definitely attract you!
Follow the lights floating on the water along the Asano-Gawa River, or just wait at the bank to see one coming after another!
It’s all up to you!
This Friday night at the river draws a good crowd every year!
Share an atmosphere of fantasy with the local people!

“Hyakumangoku Gyoretsu” Costume Parads 4th June 14:00~18:10

Do you want to see some Samurai in Japanese Kacchu armor?
If so, this is the best event to go to!
You will first see Taiko (Japanese drum) performances at the station for the starting ceremony.
Then, the parade heads to Kanazawa Castle.
It’s like a reenactment of the scene during the triumphal parade when the first lord Maeda entered the castle.
This costume parade is the main event of the festival. In the procession, you’ll see Samurai warriors, Toshiie Maeda (the first lord), O-Matsu no Kata (Toshiie’s wife), little princess Tama-Hime (Tokugawa’s daughter), Kagatobi (old firefighters), Shinto priests, a Shishi-Mai lion dance, and much more!

“Hyakumangoku Odori-Nagashi”
Marching Dance in Summer Kimono
 4th June 18:30~20:30

Private corporations or organizations send employees in summer Kimono as dancing teams.
They’ll show you Japanese traditional dances on route 157, between Kami-Tsuzumi-Machi (near the Omicho Market) and Katamachi.
There are also spaces for anyone to jump in and start dancing, so don’t hesitate if you’re feeling the rhythm!

“Hyakumangoku Takigi-Noh” Torchlight Performance of Noh 4th June 19:00~21:00
Evening Noh performance by the Kaga Hosho school.
It’s also known as the “Torchlight performance of Noh”, shown at Kanazawa Castle.
In the case of rain, it’ll be performed at the Ishikawa Noh Theater
Admission: free

Let’s enjoy all together!!!

The Uchinada beach is the nearest beach to Kanazawa.
The trip to Uchinada beach is easy, just hop on the Hokutetsu train.
The platform is below ground (down escalators) at Kanazawa station.
The ride takes about 20 mins, and Uchinada is the last stop.
When you get to Uchinada, come out of the station, hook a left and after 20 minutes’ walk, you’ll arrive in Uchinada beach.

300yen shop have recently appeared in Kanazawa station shopping centers.
All items are sold for 315yen (tax included).
I think that 300yen shops are very good as everything is foppery than 100yen shops.
