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

Beautiful experience and splendid host! This place is a must! The house is so traditional and located literally minutes walking from Kenrokuen garden and Kanazawa castle, everything is walking distance and at worst you can use the busses. If you’re planning to stay in Kanazawa be sure to start early everything closes early and you definitely want to make the most of this beautiful town. Ps. Cedric is so helpful, great host!!!!!

A very unique house. Lovely, quiet neighborhood and walking distance to kenrokuen garden. Not the easiest to access but I think that is what makes it special in some ways.

This place is fantastic. The house is beautiful, in great condition, very clean, and in a nice quiet neighborhood close to all of the major sites. There are plenty of great food options within walking distance. There are also 2 bikes which can be used to get around. It's a very bike-able city, and we used them every day as our primary means of transportation, even in the rain. Our host, Cedric met us at check-in and gave some great recommendations for food and siteseeing. Price was very reasonable for what you get. There is also affordable parking close by (~400 yen/ 24hrs) for those who drive into the city. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Kanazawa!

Cette maison qui a beaucoup de charme, permet d'imaginer plus facilement l'art de vivre qui se cache derrière les façades des petites maison de bois de ce quartier. Un reproche, il serait souhaitable de l'équiper de quatre vélos et non de deux! JBD

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.
