Katamachi-Korinbo Area 片町・香林坊エリア
Kanazawa’s lively, modern shopping and nightlife centers
The Katamachi and Korinbo areas in central Kanazawa are the premier shopping destinations in Ishikawa
Katamachi has a wide selection of popular restaurants and boutiques, while Korinbo is home to many department stores, brand outlets, and large shopping centers. The streets come to life with shoppers, particularly on weekends and holidays.
Katamachi is also home to a vibrant and modern nightlife, in contrast to the traditional atmosphere of Kanazawa during the day. There are many bars, pubs, and clubs that cater to interests from craft beer to techno music and are full of energy until late into the night. For a more low-key evening, try Japanese food and sake at an izakaya pub or sip whiskey in a cozy jazz bar.
