The Golden Tea

In Kanazawa there is a place where they make what is apparently called in english gold leafs. They press and pound the gold until it turns into a very actually extremely thin sheet. You can actually see through it and it has the texture of skin. When you visit this place they give you tea made from gold for free.

They also make other stuff using the gold leafs.

For the record, WE DID NOT DRINK THE GOLD! We drank the tea though ... I hope we're OK...

Hop on the train and woosh to Kyoto.
