Nagamachi District, Kanazawa
(3.6/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Found at the foot of a former castle, Nagamachi District transports visitors back to the age of samurais. Walking along the stone pavements within the district's walls, you can see the remaining middle-to-upper class samurai residences, earthen mud walls, and private entrance gates. The historic atmosphere is enriched by the Nomura-ke, a restored samurai residence displaying artifacts from the city's prosperous era and a small garden. Obtain a contrasting perspective by visiting a museum providing insight into the lives of the merchant class. Teahouses and restaurants, scattered throughout the district, allow visitors to rest and taste the local cuisine. Use our Kanazawa trip itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Nagamachi District and other attractions in Kanazawa.

  • Yellow walled pavements. Not much really. Didn't enjoy this district ad much as the others. Narrow and crowded. 
  • Nice stone and earthen walls, and in the Edo period slipped. But I did not did not always tourists who come and go, so people take pictures. I wanted to go early in the morning or not?.
