This is the site of former middle-class samurai residences of the Kaga Domain. The townscape retains the atmosphere of the days of domain rule when samurai walked the streets, with ocher mud walls with wooden tile roofs, water channels and "nagayamon" gates with "bushimado" windows. Moreover, the mud walls are covered in "komogake" in winter to protect them from the snow, a seasonal tradition in Kanazawa. The gardens here are also worth seeing, having been ranked third by the Journal of Japanese Gardening, an American journal, in 2003.
