If you are in Kanazawa you have to go to see this very small district. They are old samurai houses preserved and you can visit one.

This is yet another area to show further history of japan through the preserved city of Kanazawa. Don't miss this if you like the feel of history.

We went early in the morning so there is no crowd except for 1 group of European tourists.

This is where the samurai families used to reside. Some of the houses were souvenir shops. Only 1 shop was opened when we visited.

A nice place to visit but personally feel will not visit if I do not have enough time.

This represents, old Japan, and is well known for geishas walking around here, also very interesting, in layout and history, both for Japanese and Westerners. Grab a coffee watch the people pass, or grab an ice cream and relax, this is well worth a walk around and browse the shops

The place can be reached via an exit in the basement of korinbo tokyu square. After exiting the square, Turn right or go straight and after few minutes the block can be reached. Like other old villages or houses in Kanazawa or takayama, the old houses are well maintained. But there is nothing special about these houses architecturally. So if time is tight and you have been to one of this type of places, perhaps is not the top priority when visiting Kanazawa.
