Nagamachi District, Kanazawa

(3.7/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • This area of Kanazawa was pleasant and NOT filled with shops and commercialism. We enjoyed walking around, visiting a couple of museums, and admiring the cheery trees and architecture of the buildings...  more »
  • 離鬧區非常近,從香林坊才幾分鐘距離。雖然外表是江戶時期甚至更早就留下來的,但是因為還有人住,造成某種穿越時代的衝突感,很適合拍照。  more »
  • Get the impression, such as time, and left town during the Edo period. Beautiful cherry blossoms begin to bloom. However, judging from the people who actually live in that tourists are always ill at ease. And became a more complicated feelings.
