About this sight

Located to the south of the city center at the foot of the former Kanazawa Castle, this district shows visitors how samurai and their families used to reside. With its well-preserved residences, entrance gates, earthen walls, cobbled streets, narrow lanes and water canals, the area creates a historic atmosphere. One attraction that shouldn't be missed is the Nomura-ke, a restored samurai residence displaying the lifestyle and artifacts of the old warriors.
