Tucked away from the train station, it is located near the samurai house area. Much quieter than the other Geisha area in Kanazawa. The street is filled with renovated gift shops and bars. A nice area for a stroll.

If you like seeing how the old neighborhoods and houses looked, and how the spaces were used, this is a great place to meander and take in the atmosphere, If that's not your thing, it is still a nice place to walk....

This is the biggest and busiest of all the districts and this street is popular with the big bus loads of tourists. Shops, tea houses and food shops here. Very busy.
