Back to an older Japanese era
This old house contains furniture from an older time that is rarely seen these days. A geisha once owned and lived in this house. The antique furniture remains the same as when she lived here. You can feel the old Japanese atmosphere and see what a geisha’s living quarters were like.
Experience the true accomodations of a Geisha
We have kept all the furniture the same to give this place an old Japanese feel.
See the carp tiles in the bathroom and the classic colors in the kitchen to bring you back to a past Japanese era.
The house of a Geisha
Kanazawa has a 200 year history with geisha and there are currently 50 geisha still living here.Thy spend their days practicing traditional Japanese dance and music in the afternoon and entertaining their guests at night. This house was once owned by a geisha and the furniture has been kept the same as when she lived here. The interior of the house is very simple but also elegant.

The downtown area of Katamachi is Kanazawa`s busiest area. There are many restaurants, bars, and shops to enjoy.
