Nagamachi Neighborhood, Kanazawa

#2 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Hokuriku
Found at the foot of a former castle, Nagamachi Neighborhood transports visitors back to the age of samurais. Walking along the stone pavements within the district's walls, you can see the remaining middle-to-upper class samurai residences, earthen mud walls, and private entrance gates. The historic atmosphere is enriched by the Nomura-ke, a restored samurai residence displaying artifacts from the city's prosperous era and a small garden. Obtain a contrasting perspective by visiting a museum providing insight into the lives of the merchant class. Teahouses and restaurants, scattered throughout the district, allow visitors to rest and taste the local cuisine.

  • It is certainly beautiful, but it is recently maintained, so it looks like a fake. In Kyoto and Nara, people still live in the real thing hundreds of years ago. I don't know. (^_^;) I don't feel much sense of welcome for people in Kansai. (^_^;)
