Nomura Family Samurai House, Kanazawa

4.0
Step back into the past as you visit Nomura Family Samurai House, a traditional Japanese home. The residence of the Nomura family for 10 generations, the house gives a good introduction to the lifestyle and traditions of well-positioned and influential families during the Edo period, with a number of artifacts and areas preserved as they were, including a tea-ceremony room once used for greeting esteemed guests. The sliding panel doors, a roof made entirely from Japanese cypresses, and traditional garden of bonsais, bayberries, and a gentle stream, each add to the evocative air and educational value of the home.

  • The building itself is not so large, but the Japanese garden and tea room were very quaint and good. There was a big carp in the pond of the garden, too and it was healed. When the group comes in, it is a little difficult to pass each other in the corridor, but there is no problem if it is empty. There is a step to get off the edge, and it is before you can climb the stairs to go to the tea room. The railings are on, but I think wheelchairs are hard. Photography is OK. Admission: 550 yen
