house Aburaya

Traditional luxury right by the station


Aburaya is a single-story machiya-style house located just a five minute walk from Kanazawa Station. The 45m2 wooden house fits three comfortably and has been traditionally renovated with all the necessary modern amenities. With many restaurants, department stores, Kanazawa station, Omicho Fish Market and Nagamachi Samurai District all within a 15 minute walk, Aburaya is a very convenient and comfortable place to stay. Limited free parking also available (please inquire about availability).

As you enter the house, there is a lovely indoor garden, along with bicycles you can use. After removing your shoes, you enter the living dining room area, tatami mats surround a sunken in Japanese style table, along with a small western style kitchen and a bar counter with stool seating.

The one main bedroom has a semi double and single bed. We also provide futons for guests to sleep in the living room area that can comfortably be used as a second bedroom. There is Japanese bath, shower, changing rooms, toilet, and a washing machine area as well.

Our opinion

Aburaya will be a luxurious, petit machiya house, right next to Kanazawa station. A great choice for a short or long stay in Kanazawa.

Kanazawa is not a city to be missed if you want to understand Japanese culture and experience a city in nature with a rich history ready to embrace visitors. The house was excellent - just a short walk from the railway station and all rooms at ground level (no stairs!). The host was fantastic meeting us on arrival with great advice and arranging a taxi on departure. A great stay. Chris was amazing meeting as at the taxi, a great briefing on where to eat, good coffee and places to see and then ordered a taxi on our departure (as it was raining). The rooms were lovely and tastefully decorated, although compact. The house was prefect for two people.

We loved Shirakawago and Kanazawa and we had an awesome time despite the rain actually it was good to cool down the temperature. We had a great time yesterday night in downtown playing karaoke :).
The house is really comfortable and perfect for us; we used the washing machine and drier today.
We will highly recommend your house to our friends.
Thanks so much for your great service and hospitality .

This was a beautiful, tastefully decorated Japanese style house which we absolutely loved. Chris was our host and he was absolutely amazing. He met us promptly and explained everything to us in great detail, including sight-seeing tips and tips for restaurants (which were all great). There are 2 very nice bikes which we enjoyed for sight-seeing. The most outstanding feature was Chris' willingness to be helpful when my husband developed a tooth ache. Chris found a dentist for us and the tooth was promptly taken care off. We would have been utterly lost without this help! Thanks again, Chris! We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Chris and Valerie made us feel very welcomed and provided a great service to show us how everything worked and some local sightseeing tips when we checked in, whilst giving us our privacy. We also loved how traditional this home was and how we quickly got use to (and enjoyed) the traditional table with heating rather than a western couch. It made our experience feel very authentic, especially as we couldn’t stay at a ryokan with a 3 year old. This was the best alternative. The only minor flaw was that not enough hanging space for clothes with hangers was provided. Everything else had great attention to detail to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Would definitely stay again!

Chris and Valentine were just great with their welcome plus ongoing tips for things to do. The accommodation was fantastic and close to everything.
