house Temarian

Art house near the geisha districts


Temarian house is a beautiful machiya style Japanese townhouse located just minutes away from two of the famous geisha districts in Kanazawa. On a small street in a quiet neighborhood, the house’s traditional red exterior paint and lattice work mimic that of some of the old geisha houses. Art work decorates the inside of the house as well, giving the house a traditional yet fun atmosphere.

The ground floor has a kitchen, dining room, living room, sofa, TV, bathroom, washing machine and toilet. Upstairs has two separate bedrooms, one with two single beds and one with two futons.

Less than a 5 minute walk from the house are the Higashi Chaya tea district and Kazuemachi tea district. The traditional architecture, quiet streets, and the beautiful Asanogawa river make this area a truly special place to visit. Kenroku-en garden, Kanazawa Castle, and Omicho Market are all within walking distance as well. There are bus stops close by, making Temarian house a convenient place to stay during your time in Kanazawa.

Rent your own traditional machiya, and experience a truly relaxing time in Kanazawa. We look forward to having you.

Our opinion

The house name comes from the word “temari” in Japanese, which is a small ball, often embroidered with beautiful patterns. As the story goes, one of the Maeda lord’s daughters loved temari, and would often make and play with them. From this, “Kaga temari” became a famous craft in the region. Temarian house uses this imagery of the Kaga temari, offering a nice look into the traditions of Kanazawa.

Temarian was located in a quiet residential area and was a clean and safe place to stay. There was Higashi Chaya district in the immediate vicinity, and there were many delicious shops. There is an inexpensive parking lot close by. Next time I would like to drive to Noto and Hakusan for a nature experience with a base at Temarian.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Temarian. We stayed for 6 weeks, working remotely while there. Temarian is very well-suited to a long stay, so let me share some extra information from that perspective: - Cooking equipment is both very modern and well stocked - There are plenty of fresh towels, extra sheets, as well as a new washer/dryer machine - The management takes care of waste disposal - Equipped with 4G LTE internet (had no problems with video meetings, etc.) - Bath area is very comfortable and clean Beyond that perspective, the place itself was even better than the pictures present - a wonderful mix of modern and traditional, incredibly clean, very spacious, and well designed. The location is fantastic for exploring central Kanazawa, with almost all sights within walking distance. I couldn't recommend this place enough whether you stay for a short or long stay!

The house is located in a residential area and is quiet at night. You can walk to sightseeing spots such as Higashi Chaya District and Kenrokuen Garden, and a convenient location for parking lots and convenience stores within a few minutes. I was able to walk along the Asano River in a few minutes on foot, and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom and the scenery was very beautiful. There is art everywhere on the walls of the building, which is very nice! You can spend a very relaxing and calm time with Japanese-style accessories and a delicious green. It was easy to work on my computer at the house. There are plenty of tables, WiFi, and power supplies and you can have a delicious coffee or tea. It's a tidy and beautiful space where you can work more quickly than at home ^^ With my family, I had a tatami mat and a sofa so I could feel at home. It was very clean and I didn't feel any inconvenience. The staff who accepted the reception were also very good. I didn't have any trouble communicating. It was a very cozy space and it was an instant hit with my family. If we have the opportunity again, we would love to come back.
