house Tomarigi

Spacious comfort near the geisha districts

Description

Tomarigi house is a spacious and comfortable Kanazawa machiya located less than a 5 minute walk to the famous Higashi Chaya geisha district. The house was an old restaurant, and the large bar counter gives the house a unique and nice atmosphere. The house has lots of space for a group of up to 8 people to comfortably relax and spend time together, but also cozy enough for smaller groups.

The ground floor has a bar style kitchen, a heated kotatsu (traditional Japanese table), a large living room, 2 sofas, a restroom, and a small Japanese rock garden. Upstairs has two separate bedrooms, one with two single beds and one with futons. Upstairs also has a shower and bath, another restroom, and a washing machine with a dryer.

The Higashi Chaya tea district area is a place where you can experience the Japan of old. 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 close as well. Tomarigi house is located on the main road right next to two bus stops, has free parking for those traveling by car, and is a great place to spend 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 word “tomarigi” in Japanese is either a tree or a small piece of wood that birds use to rest outside of a bird house, but it is also the small wooden bar where you rest your feet when sitting on a high stool at the counter of a restaurant. There could not be a more poetic and accurate way to describe this house made of wood, which used to be a restaurant, and is today a perfect place to stay, relax and enjoy Kanazawa.

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay here. Very friendly welcome from Cedric and great info on sightseeing and restaurants. Location great. Really easy to take the 200yen bus ride to and from the train station. Traditional area with tea rooms, sake shop etc right by, other sights maximum 30 min walk away. Restaurant across the road fun, Huni bar by the river was superb.

Place was sparkling clean and cosy. Exactly like the photos seen. Even the laundry place was very clean and pleasant. Location was excellent and a short walk from chaya district. Love the parking space right next to the house.
