Higashi Chaya District is one of the popular tourist destinations in Kanazawa.
The whole district is preserved as a cultural asset, and retains its traditional look.
In the evening, the historical buildings lit up, and you will hear the sounds of shamisens (Japanese guiter) and Japanese drums somewhere. Also, the traditional houses have stone pavement, which makes women in kimono will look like the flowers of its scenery. Even though it has historical and sophisticated atmosphere, there are many casual cafés, Japanese sweets stores, traditional craft shops and miscellaneous shops.
