I had more photos from Kanazawa in the roll of film I just had developed so here they are.

The bottom four photos are taken at a lovely little shop/cafe called Collabon which is run by two local artists. There are some shops like it in Kanazawa but this one had the most welcome atmosphere of all. I had a cute company too ;)

I can't stop thinking about the wooden tray in the last photo which was seen at another shop in Kanazawa. I will try if I can get it somehow.

I bought 2 types of really cute japanese vintage papers at this shop. I thought they are made locally, but were actually from Yonagado 夜長堂 from Osaka. Their beautiful papers are also sold at keibunsha.

  4. hello melindatrees,
    No this shop is not in the street near the museum I mentioned before. It's near the Omicho Food Market in the center of Kanazawa city. I don't know if you read Japanese but here is the link to google map: http://maps.google.co.jp/maps/ms?hl=ja&gl=jp&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=113359784460254977351.000449f9afd14f6cac64c&ll=36.573406,136.655459&spn=0,0&source=embed
