Kanazawa Higashi Chaya District

Good Afternoon from the largest one of the chaya districts in Kanazawa – the Higashi Chaya district. Chaya is a traditional place of feasts and entertainment,  and when you enter back streets, you will soon find a maze of continuous alleys. The district includes facilities where you can see the interior of a chaya house that was built 180 years ago. Besides, quite a few old buildings have been renewed into restaurants, teahouses, and souvenir shops.

The A-Bomb Dome has been well preserved since it was bombed, however to protect the building from the weather, regular reinforcement and repairs with steel beams are also necessary.  The atomic bomb eliminated everything in the town. Visitors & even the locals can also enjoy river cruises on the Motoyasu River to see the park and the A-Bomb Dome from the river.
