Nagamachi Samurai District

Nagamachi Samurai District

Wandering the streets of the Nagamachi Samurai District visitors can get a sense of the old city and the important role of the samurai-class that once resided in this area. Located nearby Kanazawa Castle, the district retains much of its historic characters with preservation of traditional gates, earthen walls and charismatic laneways.

Visitors can simply wander or should you wish to learn a little more about the samurai, the Nomura House – a restored samurai residence with a lovely garden – is open to the public while the Maeda Tosanokami-ke Shiryokan profiles the history of the Maeda clan.
