Street

The Chaya District is a usual sightseeing spot in Kanazawa, selected as a Japanese National Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings, and once a bustling entertainment area certified by the Kaga clan. It is located on the east bank of the Asano River in Higashiyama, Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The old-fashioned town remains and along the main street and back alleys there are old town shops characterized by a lattice called “kimusuko”. Many of the stores currently are Japanese restaurants offering Japanese cuisine. In the evenings guests can hear the sound of the shamisen and taiko (Japanese traditional drums) coming from the houses, and feel elegant Japanese culture.

          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.
