Kaikaro Teahouse懐華樓

Historical Monument

Kaikaro while being located in the middle of Kanazawa Higashi Chaya District, it is the biggest tea house in Kanazawa. In the evening, it maintains the custom of “Ichigensan Okotowari” (meaning to “refuse first-time customers”), but during the day it is possible to take a tour of the building. You can enjoy the vermillion lacquered walls and furnishings which are unique to Kanazawa’s teahouses. Again, at the Kaikaro Cafe where they are particular about their ingredients, you can taste high quality sweets. The “Enyukai” event is held several times a year—you can experience tea house entertainment and Kaga cuisine at this event which is also open to the general public.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
