Kanazawa station 金沢駅

I was invitied by a friend to come over to Kanazawa, in Ishikawa prefecture for Golden week on 2013. I didn’t think about it twice and was an easy decision to make, I had the time and the chance to explore a bit more of other prefectures. By night bus from Tokyo, it took 6 hour trip to arrive to Kanazawa, the JR station in Kanazawa was an amazing view to start the day. I heard about the design of the station but seeing it was the perfect entryway to the city. Didn’t realize on first sight about the design, that is similar to a traditional japanese drum instrument, plus a japanese gate.
