Kazuemachi Tea House Street, Kanazawa

(4/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
Tea houses and traditional houses sit under cherry trees at Kazuemachi Tea House Street, a major Edo-period city historical district that overlooks the Asanogawa River. Squeezed between two walkable bridges, the site is especially worth visiting if you are looking for a tea house experience of old Japan. The site features minimal lighting, lanterns, bamboo fences, old wooden facades, and small shops and alleys. Don't miss the tea house experience in this traditional geisha district, which includes the sounds of string instruments, bamboo flutes, and drums in the evenings.

  • Higashi Chaya district very close to where it was. Higashi Chaya district, so many tourists, who do not take pictures, walk normally one too was tough, but too many tourists here not so excellent "ochaya" sequence. A few locations, such as shopping and dining.

  • I stopped by after the Higashi Chaya district. What happened that evening hours also are able to enjoy the city in a quiet side street, the number of tourists is less helpful.

  • Speaking of good old Kanazawa City, Higashi Chaya district is very famous, but Kazue-machi teahouse outside of East Street as well, so therefore it is a town. Kazue-machi teahouse streets better than across the street from the Higashi Chaya district located in Kanazawa in the calm and peaceful atmosphere, and feel personally.
