house Sennichi

Traditional house on the river


Both the traditional and the modern are right at your fingertips while staying at the beautiful Sennichi House. While just across the bridge from the the famous samurai district and a short walk from the Ninja Temple, Sennichi house is also just a few minutes from the downtown area with all the best shopping and restaurants in Kanazawa.

The house is cozy yet perfect for a group up to four to relax after a great day of walking around the city. The ground floor’s open kitchen and living room make it great for families or friends to relax with food and drink all while gazing out into the large private garden. The second floor has two beautifully decorated bedrooms separated by a small hallway.

Ten steps from the front door is a view of the Saigawa River, one of Kanazawa’s two famous rivers. You will instantly know why Kanazawa is called “little Kyoto” while enjoying the view overlooking the river and the city. Everything including the supermarket, convenience store, post office, restaurants, and galleries are less than a ten minute walk from Sennichi House.

Ground floor: Japanese living room with TV, western dining room, kitchen, shower, western toilet, private garden.

Upper level: 2 tatami-floored bedrooms


5-26 Sennichimachi Kanazawa-shi, Ishikawa-ken

Perfect, non-touristy location for exploring a wonderful city. Valentine directed us to a yakitori place that proved to be one of the culinary highlights of our trip. Kanazawa is very walkable, but there is an easy-to-use bus system to help you get around. Thank you Chris and Valentine!

Chris is a great host and took the time to explain the amenities in the house and offered suggestions to where to eat and visit. It was super nice of him to organize a safety gate for the stairs for my toddler. The house itself is very spacious and nice to live in. I would recommend this house to anyone who visits in Kanazawa.

A very cozy, nicely renovated and well appointed "machiya" in charming Kanazawa. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcoming (merci Valentine!), the tips, and the comfort of the place, located by the river on a quiet street. So much better and more personal than a hotel room. Highly recommended in all aspects of experiencing a slice of Japan.
