Nagamachi District, Kanazawa

3.7
#4 of 26 in Neighborhoods in Chubu
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

  • After a long day of walking through Kanazawa, came to this area in the evening and we could really appreciate the tranquility of its streets, the murmur of the waters that pass along the ancient buildings. I don't know if I would recommend this time because everything was closed and we could not visit inside the houses. As well, and everything was very pleasant ride.

  • Small neighborhood of the era from Samurai with a few pretty open houses that reveal magnificent gardens. The ride is nice but is reduced to a few streets

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.
