One of the chaya (tea house) districts, widely known as a part of Kanazawa culture. The streets are lined with formal restaurants, stylish townhouse cafes and selection shops handling traditional craftworks, so you can enjoy Kanazawa-style cuisine and shopping. The old townscape, brimming with atmosphere, has been designated as a Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings.

Point

There are lots of hidden cafes and selection shops in the alleyways of the surrounding area, not just on the main street, so we also recommend exploring the area. Renting kimonos is also popular, so you can take photos and blend in with the atmosphere of the neighborhood.
