This is literally just a short row of buildings (maybe a 50-60 meter long street) and thats it. You spend more time walking from the nearest loop bus station to get here then what you will spend at this place. Only visit here if you...More

We spent a day seeing sites in Kanazawa and walked through this small Geisha District after visiting the Ninja Temple (not to be missed). This area is much smaller than the large Higashi Chaya district across the river. If you are in the area, it...More

This place is less touristy and only a small stretch of shops. Also very quiet and peaceful, esp in the mornings. If you are thinking of shopping and taking photos, you are better off going to Higashi Chaya district. This place is more for relaxing...More

Place is so empty it is almost a pity. Potential is here, but nothing really to see if you compare it to Higashi Chaya. Still if you have time, worth visiting.

The street is a row of teahouses and restaurants. From the outside interesting enough, but nothing spectecular. In addition streams of tourists spoil the feel.

This street is only 500m long. You can literally walk to the end of it in 3 mins. The occupants of the shops don't seem very traditional to me, e.g. coffee and ice cream. The street was also completely empty with the exception of maybe...More

This is another place where the bijin (teahouse girls) lived and served their skills to those that liked the relaxation of tea houses.

Tucked away from the train station, it is located near the samurai house area. Much quieter than the other Geisha area in Kanazawa. The street is filled with renovated gift shops and bars. A nice area for a stroll.

If you like seeing how the old neighborhoods and houses looked, and how the spaces were used, this is a great place to meander and take in the atmosphere, If that's not your thing, it is still a nice place to walk....
