In our lives, it is important to think deeply. However it is difficult for us because we have to work, study, and care for our children and parents… we are so busy! Going to rural areas to think deeply, we need time and money, however, in Kanazawa, there is best place to be lost in mediation…
The name of that place is…
It is located in Kakinokibatake area, near Korinbo and Katamachi. The concept color of that bar is white. Many things inside the bar are white.
When you enter that bar, you feel as if you enter another world, because inside the bar almost all people don’t speak, and they are relaxing. Inside the bar, it is dark and only candles are burning, and it is projected some part of movies onto the big screen.
When I go to shirasagi…
From the past time, I wanted to enter shirasagi because that bar was different from other restaurants in Kakinokibatake. Also, I am interested in art and I think I can enjoy art in shirasagi and it will be good studying. One day, when I passed in front of shirasagi, my friend of university was working at shirasagi, and I decided to enter. Inside there, office workers are relaxing without doing something. May be they are in mediation. I ordered whisky, and I sat in front of the counter. I tried to speak to the woman next to me, and I could enjoy talking with her. Other people were enjoying talking with bartender. They are talking about their work, their family, and their lovers and so on.
If you are interested…
Seeing is better than hearing, you should visit sirasagi once. While you are traveling, you may feel tired, that is the best timing to go to sirasagi. You can experience mediation and if you go outside, at that time you are not tired anymore, and your feeling may be clear!
Sometimes, concerts are held, so that is another way to enjoy shirasagi.
