house Kenroku

Traditional machiya-style Japanese house


Conveniently located only five minutes on foot from Kenrokuen Garden and Kanazawa Castle, and 10 minutes on foot from Higashi Tea District, Kenroku House is a great place from which to experience Kanazawa. Nestled on a quiet street that feels like the Japan of old, this house offers tradition and comfort that will make a couple or family feel right at home.

As you step into the house, your feet will feel beautiful tatami mats as your gaze is drawn to the private garden behind the house. Relaxing at the western-style kitchen table viewing the garden will refresh the tired traveler. Upstairs are two spacious tatami rooms, elegant sliding Japanese paper doors, and plenty of warm sunlight.

This house's spacious 100 sq. meters has both traditional and western style flooring that create a warm sense of comfort. Completely renovated, the house has air conditioning, a kitchen, bath, and plenty of space to just relax. Inside and out, the house is as convenient as it is comfortable. Go for a walk around beautiful Kanazawa, or take the bus that stops less that 5 minutes from the house, and you can get to the station, the Samurai District, Omicho Fish Market, or downtown all within less than 20 minutes.

Ground floor: Japanese living room, western dining room, kitchen, bath and shower, western toilet, private garden

2nd floor: 2 large tatami rooms, large closet, veranda

This place was a gem. It was in a very peaceful residential neighborhood but also close to all the tourist attractions in Kanazawa. It was a beautiful Japanese house with all the special touches. We really enjoyed staying here and would come again if we are in the area. Cèdric was a great host. He gave us some great recommendations for places to visit, restaurants and bars. He also arranged a taxi for us on the day we checked out which was specially helpful since it was raining that morning and we were travelling with a toddler.

Présence, disponibilité et accueil agréable. Bonne anticipation avant notre arrivée, continuité de service rendu depuis la prise en charge initiale jusqu'à la fin de la prestation voire au-delà.

Nice house, with everything you could need (washing machine, micro-wave, etc), very clean. It has been renovated but keeps a strong and nice traditional atmosphère. We enjoyed the two bikes. Points of interests aren’t far (walking distance) but it’s located in an area which has nothing special. We thank a lot Cedric, who welcomed us, for his sympathy and all the good tips he gave us.

Very nice and well equipped traditional Japanese house, two bikes were also available for us to use which was great! Some green tea and coffee are available as well. Check in was smooth, Cédric was nice and gave us a lot of hints of stuff to do and where to eat. Thanks!

A perfect experience. Great hospitality. We were met by by Cédric and he explained in personal how to use all facilities and provided very useful recommendations. The house is perfectly located near the Kenrokuen garden and the castle. One of the best Airbnb experiences.
