house Higashiyama Komachi

The artist’s machiya


Higashiyama Komachi is a spacious Japanese machiya, filled with traditional and modern art. Located just a 5 minute walk from the famous Higashi Chaya tea district, right next to two bus stops, and free parking for those traveling by car, this house is a great place to spend your time in Kanazawa.

The ground floor has a large living room, kitchen, shower, restroom, and Japanese garden. Upstairs is one large bedroom with one double and two single futons. Both the ground floor and upstairs have high ceilings, creating a very spacious yet traditional feel.

The interior of this house is truly unique. The owner of the house is a local art producer, and has decorated the house with art from international artists but also traditional Japanese antiques. With plenty of space to keep your luggage and an open living room the leads into the kitchen, the house is a great place to relax after traveling.

The Higashi Chaya tea district area is a place where you can experience the Japan of old. The traditional architecture, quiet streets, and the beautiful Asanogawa river make this an area a truly special place to visit.

Rent your own traditional machiya, and experience a truly relaxing time in Kanazawa. We look forward to having you.

Our opinion

Higashiyama Komachi is incredibly unique, and a youthful take on a traditional machiya style house.

Different from hotels and ryokans, I think people can have a great time here.  We enjoyed our time at this rental house.

Sommes très satisfaits de la relation avec Vivre le Japon , communication facile et efficace. Tous les documents remis sont très faciles à comprendre, notamment pour rejoindre les hébergements qu'ils nous avaient réservé. Expérience très agréable et nous recommanderons Vivre le Japon à ceux qui souhaiteraient aller au Japon.
