“Higashiyama Kageroi” machiya house lies within the beautifully preserved city of Kanazawa – introducing you to a side of Japan that will surprise even the most seasoned visitors.

Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture.

A city located along the western coast, near the Sea of Japan, Kanazawa is affectionately known as “Little Kyoto”.
Not only does it boast traditional houses, neighborhoods reminiscent of a town rich in history, cuisine featuring delicacies found only in Kanazawa, but a plethora of crafts and folk art recognized by UNESCO.
Explore Kenroku-en Garden, considered to be one of the most beautiful in Japan, & the Teahouse Districts (where feudal lords once lived lavishly), or marvel the works of Gold Leaf artisans who decorate everything from chopsticks to cakes in gold.

Located in the “Higashi Chaya District” – An old neighborhood that is dotted with traditional teahouses and stone-paved streets that echoes its former glory.

Guest Rooms


This spacious machiya house welcomes you with its dark wooden lattice-framed windows, and unique slate-coloured walls (in which small particles of serpentine rock have been embedded) .


An open floor plan that includes an antique wooden table, complete with a bench and chairs that can seat up to 9 guests. Rich, mahogany wood line the floor to seamlessly blend with the traditional tatami mats. The Japanese living room features “shoji” doors, large cushions to relax on, and a view of the garden from which the soft sunlight illuminates the room.


Surrounded by a beautiful bamboo fence is a garden that will provide you a space of tranquility during your stay– Japanese greenery, a stone lantern & basin exemplifies the simplicity and beauty of traditional “tsuboniwa” gardens.


A fully functional kitchen is available during your stay. Stop by the local supermarket, or pick up some fresh groceries from “Omicho Market”– a bustling outdoor market selling fresh seafood, produce, and handmade delicacies.


A luxurious space for you to relax in, with walls that have been lavishly lined with “Noto Hiba” wood. This wood can be found in the Noto region of Ishikawa prefecture. It emits a subtle scent that will allow for you to relax in the large bathtub after a day of exploring Kanazawa.

Japanese-Style BEDROOMS

A deep ultramarine blue paints the walls of one room, while a brilliant splash of red covers the walls of the adjacent room. Although surprising, at first glance, to be surrounded by bright colors within a traditional space, these colors hold a long history within Kanazawa.
The “Kanazawa Colors” represent a unique side of the city: Red served as a backdrop to showcase the geiko & maiko who often entertained guests. While blue was a hue favored by Samurai warriors — as it was a color hard to acquire and therefore represented power.
