Nagamachi Samurai Quarter

Kanazawa’s old samurai district, Nagamachi is characterized by earthen walls which surround the historical residences. Many of the houses can be visited, and we particularly recommend the Nomura residence, which is now a museum and well known for its verdant garden, the Ashigaru Shiryokan Museum, which features reconstructed houses of samurai foot soldiers, and the Kaga Hanshii: once a stable for horses, this now houses a pleasant strolling garden.
