Higashi Geisha District


  Higashi Chaya District still preserves an aspect of the Kanazawa of feudal times, showing the picturesque atmosphere of the wooden lattice fronts of old geisha houses. Much old architecture is lovingly preserved by the people who live there.
  Shima Chaya House, an elegant former geisha house, offers tourists a rare chance to view its interior.
