Kazuemachi District 主計町茶屋街
Riverside geiko district with labyrinthine streets and traditional buildings
Kazuemachi is one of Kanazawa’s traditional “teahouse” entertainment districts where geiko (the local name for geisha) entertain exclusive clientele with music, dance, and games. This teahouse district was established in the early Meiji era (1868–1912). Kazuemachi’s wooden buildings, cherry trees, and riverside location create a charming atmosphere.
