The entrance to Kanazawa's Higashi Chaya District.
Our gallery shop, housed in a historical building, features traditional Kaga crafts, which are beautifully displayed in each room.
The Higashi Chaya District is the place where Kanazawa's culture originated.
The performing arts and tea culture of Kanazawa have been passed down from one generation to the next in this part of the city, which fortunately was not damaged during a war; the buildings have remained intact since their construction in 1820.
Kanazawa Higashiyama Shitsurae faces onto Hiromi, the central part of this district.
Everybody who comes here is welcomed by the willow tree that stands here displaying its supple branches.
