The site features minimal lighting, lanterns, bamboo fences, old wooden facades, and small shops and alleys.

  • On the way back from the Higashi Chaya district, passing by to visit. Peaceful location in quiet, no tourists. I thought it was a place where it blends into the environment in the sense of the original.

Being in the city worth knowing this street and the neighborhood where is the same.

Where to stay in Kanazawa

The well-preserved castle town of Kanazawa has a good range of accommodations, with the most popular among them sitting in tall modern blocks overlooking the historical areas of town, or the more commercial parts. Look to the west of the castle grounds for some particularly well-positioned options, offering urban views, spas, pools, and restaurants. North-west from here, close to the main train station, you'll find a good selection of slightly simpler options in tall blocks, while the residential districts across the city house simple guesthouses and the odd hostel.
