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

Highly recommend for a family traveling to Kanazawa. Nice mix of traditional Japanese and Western-style home. Walking distance to the garden and castle. Great bakery a few blocks away that opens early. Communication was smooth. Hope to come again!

Very comfortable and we recommend. It seems to be a little old because it is an old Japanese house, but there are some new places because it has been renovated. It was a very comfortable space.

The house was very convenient for sightseeing as it was close to Kanazawa Castle and Kenrokuen Garden. It was very clean and well prepared. The house had most of the necessities, so I didn't have to use my own. The advice for check-in was quick, polite, and it was a comfortable stay.

 I highly recommend Kenroku House as an excellent place to stay. The house is exactly as described, clean, and a great combination of a traditional old style Japanese home with some sensitive modern touches. The beds are comfortable. The house is well equipped and well located, close to the older part of town and the beautiful Kenrokuen garden. Chris went above and beyond at check in, informing us of all that Kanazawa and Kenroku House has to offer, and also helping us when needed. We loved our stay here.
