Kanazawa's treasure! Stroll along 「Higashi Chaya District」 - the city's largest teahouse neighbourhood. Have tea and sweets and feel a part of history. It's just 7-minutes on foot from your house, Hinaya Higashiyama.
Try 「Kanazawa curry」! It's a local curry recipe with rich roux, fresh cabbage and fried-pork cutlet, and served in stainless steel dish (an important detail!). You'll find many restaurants throughout Kanazawa that serve this local speciality.
Kanazawa is famous for its brilliant gold leaf. Visit 'Hazuka' to see its golden tea room - it's just 1-minute away from Hinaya Higashiyama! Observe artists making crafts, or create your own at its 'Hikari-zo' location.
Have you been to a sento before? 「Kuwanayu」 is a traditional sento bathhouse that is loved by locals for its healing properties. It’s the perfect way to experience Japanese culture - and warm up during the winter!
I love discovering new craft breweries and bars in Kanazawa. I recommend the Yuzu Citrus Ale at「Oriental Brewing」！ They offer 4 original and 4 local beers. Take a refreshing break after your visit to the Higashi Chaya District.
At Hinaya Higashiyama, find charming designs inspired by Kanazawa. The round windows with wood and bamboo weaving are special to tea ceremony rooms, and the ocean blue walls remind you of Kanazawa’s calm seas.
