Go Go Curry, Kanazawa, Japan

Armed with a 1:46pm Shinkansen ticket to Nagano and a late checkout from my hotel I wanted a decent lunch before my train trip.

Chibo, Kanazawa, Japan

After the Beef and Egg rice at Shiroyamatei I did a quick explore of Kanazawa Castle and the gardens then headed off towards Omi-cho Market to have a look before it wound down for the day.

From Omi-chi Market I headed towards Kanazawa Station and my hotel looking for a snack. I made it all the way back to the station without finding much (it was after lunch hours) so decided to head into the Kanazawa Forus shopping complex. In Japan all shopping complexes have a floor or 2 of restaurants – it’s normally either the basement or somewhere near the top – in this case it was the 6th floor.
