Nishi Chaya Districtにし茶屋街

Street

This area once flourished as a licensed chaya (traditional place of feasts and entertainment by geisha) district of the Kaga Clan and is still an area with Japanese restaurants and geisha houses lining the streets. It is located on the west side of “Saigawa River” in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The chaya style town houses with impressive lattices line the streets, and the atmosphere of traditional pleasure quarters refusing first-time customers without introduction remains. It is the town where the Taisho period novelist Seijiro Shimada, who wrote the best-selling novel “On the Ground” at the age of 20, spent his childhood. In the “Nishi-Chaya Museum,” visitors can see material on Seijiro Shimada and a reproduction of a Japanese style room of chaya.

          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.
