Among the historical samurai residences of Nagamachi, discover this private「MACHIYA RESIDENCE INN Kanazawa」vacation house, “Shiori”. It is inspired by the motif of the moon and samurai’s fascination with ‘tsukimi’: the ancient Japanese custom of moon-viewing.
Gather with friends and family in the modern kitchen and dining area. Admire the art piece of the moon made of red lacquer and gold leaf - both crafts traditional to the Kanazawa region. Relax in the tea room-inspired ‘tatami’ living room, or have a seat in the sofa chairs to take in the view of your very own serene traditional Japanese garden. Upstairs, find Western and Japanese-style bedrooms adorned with gold and silver, which represent Kanazawa’s gold leaf tradition and the samurai’s fondness of moon-viewing.
Reserve this house with Hanatsume, a neighboring machiya vacation house, to accommodate up to 12 guests.
Renting two private, individually designed houses is perfect for groups of couples, friends and families who wish to experience the charm of traditional machiyas together.
