house Saigawa

Machiya right on the river


Saigawa house is a two story machiya that sits right on the Saigawa river, one of two beautiful rivers running through Kanazawa. This house is a newly constructed property, however built like a traditional Japanese style machiya house.

As you enter, the first floor has the kitchen, bath, and living room with a veranda and a small garden providing a perfect place to relax. Up on the second floor, there is a tastefully done circular window at the top of the stairs, that looks out onto the river. There are two bedrooms, one with western beds and one with traditional futons. The house gets a lot natural light and has stunning views of the Saigawa river from the second floor. In the spring, the river side is lined with blooming cherry blossom trees.

As you step out of the house, not only can you relax by the river, but the house is located just minutes from downtown and the famous samurai district. Shopping, nightlife, the Nomura samurai house, and the ninja temple are all about a 5 to 10 minute walk away. As for the restaurants, this area has almost anything you could want, from delicious sushi, tasty ramen, and enough Izakayas, bars and karaoke joints to have a good time any night of the week.

Our opinion

The materials and style in which the house was built are just fantastic. Real, new, Japan. And the views from the second floor, we think are world class. Hope to have you!

Saigawa House is a fantastic rental - very practical and well equipped, and an easy space for a family. The check in process was fantastic, and the house is in a great location - right next to the samurai district, and an easy walk to the castle/Kenrokuen/Omicho market.
