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.

This is a beautiful, traditional Japanese home in a convenient, yet quiet location. Valentine met us on arrival and gave some excellent tips for enjoying Kanazawa. The castle and gardens were a short walk away, as were many great shops and restaurants. Wonderful home and perfect hospitality. The house couldn't have been better. It made our stay perfect. I hope I can stay there again someday!

We had a very comfortable 3-night stay at Kenroku house in Kanazawa. Valentine and Chris were very helpful in answering my questions and providing us with a great orientation to the city, with helpful tips on what to see and when, and how to get around. The house was great - layout worked well for us, with the large dining table while my son loved the kotatsu table! Sleeping spaces were very comfortable as well. The house is also very conveniently located to Kenrokuen garden, with a couple of convenience stores nearby. You need to walk a little further into other areas for restaurants.
