One thought on “Kanazawa City Residents Marathon 2012

  1. Sorry, I want to ask some questions. My family and I plan to stay in Ishikawa for three months from August to November 2012 for my PhD studies. I am very worried about the financial budget. I received a scholarship for 3 months was 600,000 yen, is it enough or not. I hope this blog can help answer my question
