Like other chaya street, unless you go in the tea house, you just see a quite street. Wooden structure? went to a lot of Japan old machi, you will know the structure here are pretty normal. I reached here around noon, the street look like ghost town. Almost no people, doors closed up.

One of the tourists spots you won't want to miss besides the Kanrokuen, Kanazawa Castle and the Kazuemachi Tea House Street. It was like in time machine bringing people back Japan long long time ago with wooden houses, small shops and alleys. I was there on a snowy day, made the visit more romantic.

I'm very into Japanese culture & this is quite authentic. We were actually able to visit one & attend a performance that evening of geishas.

Kanazawa boasts three active geisha districts, aka the "tea" streets. All are well worth a visit, and each is distinctive. As the "smallest" of the three, Kazuemachi is sometimes overlooked, a great shame as its riverside location, cafes and shops, and during cherry blossom season, gorgeous ephemeral trees all make it well worth an afternoon's stroll.

Beautiful street when the cherry trees blossom. Walk here in the afternoon 7 evening and eat dinner at one of the restaurants. One of the spots we liked the best in Kanazawa.

This is a a smaller area of traditional teahouses. Some of them are still places where geiko-san come to entertain guests but most have been transformed into restaurants or inns. It is a beautiful and quiet place to walk along the river in the evening. The lighting is minimal and it takes you back in time
