Tatemachi Street 竪町 ストリート

Window shopping

More used to Kanazawa's youth in search of the latest fashionable item than to hordes of tourists, Tatemachi shopping street is the ideal place for shopping or strolling a bit after visiting the many tourist sites around.

Tatemachi Street has the tremendous advantage of being located in the immediate vicinity of major tourist sites such as Kenrokuen , the 21st century contemporary art museum, the Nagamachi samurai district and the historic houses of the Higashi Chaya district .

Nearly 200 brands , some of which are grouped together in three shopping centers, welcome window-shopping enthusiasts: clothing and cosmetics stores, hairdressing salons, bookstores, grocery stores, jewellers, etc. The many cafes and restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisine (fast- food, Japanese and Western gastronomy) at reasonable prices.

If after class, Kanazawa high school students find themselves in large numbers in the shopping street, it is generally to take advantage of cafes and shops dedicated to pop culture such as Animate or Village Vanguard . But Tatemachi Street has its reputation among fashionistas of all kinds. All styles are present: casual, trendy, chic, vintage… Kawaii and gothic lolita fashions are not to be outdone with the Angelic Pretty and Alice and the Pirates boutiques.

Finally, for a little break with friends, the new place to try is the DK art cafe . The latter, opened in 2016, was developed by students from the Kanazawa Institute of Technology. You will appreciate the digital works of Akira Hasegawa projected on the walls . A real kaleidoscope!
