Higashi-no-Kuruwa (Eastern Pleasure Quarter)

Higashi-no-Kuruwa (Eastern Pleasure Quarter) Review

The high-class entertainment district of Edo-period Kanazawa was near the Asano-gawa. Now the pleasures are limited to viewing quaint old geisha houses recognizable by their wood-slat facades and latticed windows. Many have become tearooms, restaurants, or minshuku. If you are lucky, you might see a geisha scuttling to an appointment. Take the JR bus from Kanazawa Station (¥200) to Hachira-cho, just before the Asano-gawa Ohashi. Cross the bridge and walk northeast into the quarter.
