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

We loved our stay here and wish we could have stayed longer! We are a family of four and found the space comfortable, functional and stylish. The location was amazing - in a lovely quiet street but so close to shops, restaurants and landmarks. Chris, our host, met us when we arrived and we were so grateful. Not only did he talk us through what we needed to know about the house, he laid out a map of the city and gave us tips for sightseeing, restaurants, shops and transport. We have stayed in many rental houses in Japan and this would have to be one of the best.

A very nice and quiet place though it is sitting around many eateries which are situation just 5 mins walk away. Host is very helpful and quick to respond. A very clean and the condition of the house is as shown in the picture. I give 5 stars to this place.
Valentine was very helpful and informative. Response almost immediately. We have a great stay at her place.

Location! Location! Location! This is a very convenient location for exploring Kanazawa. The house is well equipped with all amenities. The kitchen and fridge is very useful if you plan to cook (we had to as we were there on New Year’s eve and many restaurants are closed).

We (party of 4) spent 4 days in this house - 4 very nice days! The house itself is a great mix between traditional and western style, I is spacious and light-filled and the little attached Japanese garden is a pleasure all by itself. GREAT location! So many things and areas are in walking distance! Only time we took a car was when we visited the Kanazawa castle and gardens. Chris was already waiting for us and gave us a thorough tour of the house and a wonderful introduction to the city. And we appreciate that he went through the effort to put a coffee maker in the kitchen for us ;-) We really had a wonderful stay! 2 things one should know: Like in many (all?) Japanese cities and towns there is no street parking. There are a few paid parking spots nearby BUT after 5PM or so they're full and finding a spot then becomes a challenge. The other thing is that the kitchen is rather small. Cooking for 4 needs planning. There is only one hot plate, two would have been better for us. But hey, we made it happen ;-) All in all: highly recommended !!!

Great location, just across the river from the major sites, short walk to everything, and on a quiet, pretty street right next to the river. Host Valentine is exceptionally thoughtful.
Valentine, thank you for making our time in Kanazawa so delightful. And easy! Hope to come visit again. Eric
