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.

    It is a beautiful town located tourist information. May is not a summer season. You don't feel life is actually still live there. Brook also flows, is beautiful. Close to dining there.

    Keeping the landscape Institute of life and beautiful (recycle spotless) efforts are featured, anyway, officials said more effort and want creative view of signs (part of the pillar is a little concerned in Brown, but display is really no consideration) and the road. I think great efforts to inconvenience a lot of inconveniences and life (more houses have been living more than stores, etc.) at droves of tourists. Kanazawa Castle, and, together with the 6 Park, each street as a tourist route please. Nagamachi looking cut with something missing.

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.
