Nagamachi District, Kanazawa

3.7
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.

  • Old wooden houses of the edo era. Many geishas or young people dressed like them are. Reatoranes and houses for you. A place of internal and external tourism. A nice ride that is puefe complement with a route of temples that are in the area.

  • Very interesting to discover neighborhood strolling through the alleys. We discover the soul of what was this neighborhood at the time of the Samurai. Some houses are of course just seen behind walls but else offer to beautiful visits as the Nomura Residence and the House Shinise. Don't miss the KAGA - YUSEN WORK SHOP, workshop that allows to see the creation and exposure of most beautiful kimonos than the other.
