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 location near the Samurai district of Kanazawa. The house was spacious for the two of us, and we were even able to use the laundry! Chris gave us great recommendations and even helped us make a dinner reservation. Awesome service. Highly recommend.

We have a perfect perfect stay at Kaga home. Chris and Valentine were wonderful, they were very responsive, gave us great tips about the city. The house itself was very cute and fully equipped . We will definitely come back and hopefully try out other house of Japan experience.

We had a wonderful stay at Kaga House! Valentine met us upon arrival and explained everything we needed to know about the house. She also had a map for us and went over tips and recommendations. We needed a taxi to transport us back to the train station and Valentine even made those arrangements for us! The house was comfortable for 4 people and sparkling clean. The only thing you really need to be mindful of are the low entryways. If you're tall you will hit your head! Would definitely recommend a trip to Kanazawa if you're visiting Japan and stay at Kaga House.

This property was clean, Chris was a fantastic host with lots of local tips to pass on, and the house is located in an area that lets you walk through Nagamachi every day- very atmospheric. Plus it is no more than a 20 minute walk to the furthest sites; most places within about a 10 minute walk. Would definitely book again!

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!
