Souvenirs

Kaga Temari (yarn balls) is a tradition said to have begun when Lady Tamahime brought them to the Kaga clan when she married into the Tokugawa family in the Edo period. Kaga Temari Mariya continues to make and sell these yarn balls. Every stage of the process, from creating the base to each needle weave in the pattern, is performed in the traditional way, resulting in charming beauty. And at Mariya, the old technique of using a Kaga thimble is maintained. Approximately 20 minutes on foot from JR Kanazawa Station.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
