The Golden Age

by Robert Michael Poole

Set between the Sea of Japan and the mountain range of holy Hakusan, the golden wetlands of Kanazawa host a Japan of a bygone era.

Standing in the centre of the city is never usually this peaceful and I find myself peering down into a tiny patch of still water, protected by a hefty, 800-year-old, tiered, black-lead roof. This is Kinjo Reitaku, a well which sits in a small secluded corner of one of Japan’s most revered gardens.
