A name befitting of the town’s history and culture – the origin of this town’s name is said to derive from the plethora of Japanese gourds (hyoutan) that was once bought and sold within this thriving castle city.
The hyotan gourd is a motif that has been incorporated into countless artwork, proverbs, and has also been used in everyday life. Their humorous and memorable shape is representative of good fortune within Japanese culture, and is still relevant in current culture.
From the textured, clay walls, to the wooden frameworks that give warmth to the house – each detail has been painstakingly restored to its original beauty. With the addition of modern facilities, your time in Kanazawa will be transformed with your stay at “Hisago UMA” machiya house. When reserved with the adjoining house, up to 9 guests can experience staying in a traditional machiya house.
