Neighborhoods Katamachi

Spirit

Katamachi is the main district of downtown Kanazawa. While you have all the conveniences of the big city like restaurants, shopping and live music, you are just a couple minutes away from the famous samurai district, the ninja temple, the 21st century museum of contemporary art, and the beautiful Saigawa River. Walk, take a bus, or rent a bike and easily get to all of the sights in Kanazawa like the famous Kenroku-en garden, Omicho fish market, and Higashi Chaya tea district. The food in Kanazawa is to die for, and there is no other place to get a better look at the selection of dishes than in Katamachi.
