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
