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.

Just advise that you need to book bedding when your booking. That was quite unclear and in the west when you book a house it usually comes with bedding included. Other than that we had the most amazing time Great location and Valentine was fabulous and gave a detailed walking plan to fit our schuudle. Would highy recommend it.

Kaga House est une maison traditionnelle où l’on se sent bien tout de suite. Tout était parfait dans ce logement.

Such a cool and fun place! Valentine was so kind and helpful with local tips and a map that she went through with us. They had provided instructions to arrive that were thorough and easy. The house itself was beautiful and very comfortable. The location was also convenient to all that we had planned. We highly recommend!
We had the best time!!! Thank you for our stay!

A wonderfully renovated Machiya in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to Kanazawa's sights and night life. We were met in-person by Cedric who showed us how to use everything and sat down to review recommended places throughout the city. Cedric even helped find a delicious local dorayaki shop after I told him my trip had become a dorayaki roadshow. The house was comfortable, stylish, and traditional with all the modern amenities. The washing machine was a huge plus! Highly recommended.
