Japanese cuisine has a long history stretching back thousands of years. In the city of Kanazawa on the Sea of Japan side, there’s a restaurant serving recipes from the Edo period which were presented to Daimyo in banquets. What you see will shock you! Yes – there were Geisha / Geiko too. Join Kanae (my wife) and I for some dancing and drums.
