Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chubu / Hokuriku / Ishikawa Prefecture / Kanazawa / Nagamachi Neighborhood
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. Make Nagamachi Neighborhood part of your personalized Kanazawa itinerary using our Kanazawa trip maker tool.

It was very good to be able to wander this well preserved and reconstructed neighbourhood and see how people lived so long ago. Certainly worth a wander.

Would definitely recommend to japan lovers.
Beautifully preserved samurai housing complex. I love this much better than Gion in Kyoto. Visited this place during pandemic makes it emptier, so I can enjoy the view without any crowds. I now under why the walls covered by "straws" blanket. Better visit this place during sunset.
