house Kaga

Gem of a machiya


Tucked around the corner from a small buddhist temple and minutes away from the Nagamachi samurai district and Saigawa river, is Kaga House. Here, you have everything you need to enjoy a fun and relaxing time Kanazawa.

The house was traditionally transformed into a modern day machiya and has a wonderful mix of east and west. The first floor has a garden, living room, kitchen and bath area. The living room has nice tatami floors and looks out from the large windows onto the Japanese garden. On the second floor you have bedrooms that will truly help you experience a real Japan. The bedrooms are blue and red, a famous pair of colors in Kanazawa distinguishing samurais from non samurais. With western beds in one room and comfortable futons in the other, not only is the house easy to relax in, but the location is great too.

The Nagamachi samurai district, downtown Katamachi, Saigawa river, and the ninja temple are all less than a ten minute walk. Kanazawa is a relatively small city, but has a lot of nice places to see and restaurants to explore. Kaga house makes all of those very easy do. We hope to have you!

Our opinion

The same designers and construction team that built Sennichi house did this house as well and it will very be hard to say which one is better. Kaga house is a convenient, tastefully done machiya in the heart of Kanazawa.

Great house in great location! Also great team. Valentine organized taxi at the end of the tour and did a temple reservation which we couldn't have done without her. Thanks a million!

We loved staying in Kaga House. It was a lovely combination of traditional style and modern convenience. Stairs are steep but that is part of the style. Chris, our travel angel, was so helpful and the location was excellent - right next to the samurai district with great restaurants close by but still in a quiet residential area. Highly recommended.

The house is just as described, which means it's large, clean and in a great location for sight seeing and good food! Chris was a great host that had tons insider tips and suggestions. 10/10 would come again!

I can’t say enough about how wonderful our entire stay at the Kaga house was for our family of four! Valentine met us at the house for easy check in and clearly explained everything we needed to know in order to have a comfortable stay, as well as giving specific recommendations for where to go and want to see, outlined on our own personal map. She also generously made us reservations at two of her favorite dinner restaurants, which were truly the highlight of our entire Japan trip! After a long week of travel, it was so refreshing to have someone fluent in Japanese help make these arrangements. The house was comfortable and sparkling clean and had everything we needed in order to have a perfect stay. I would highly recommend the Kaga house if it is available for your stay in Kanazawa. The location is easy walking distance to many popular destinations or easy transit.
