Higashi Chaya District is the largest preserved tea house district in Kanazawa. Lined with traditional wooden buildings, Higashi Chaya was first established in 1820 as an entertainment district for wealthy merchants and nobility. Many of the buildings have now been converted to shops and cafes, while some continue to operate as tea houses open to the public. Among the list of attractions in Higashi Chaya, it is recommended to tourists to explore Ochaya Shima, Kaikaro, and Gold Leaf Sakuda.
The district is also a popular area for sweets and traditional Japanese wagashi. There are multiple shops selling mochi, dango, sushi, and gold-leaf ice cream. The preserved backdrop and streets are perfect for photos during your holiday vacation, or to relax and contemplate your next craft project. You can enjoy visiting Higashi Chaya with Japan Deluxe Tours during our fully-guided line of Quilt Festival Japan Tours or with a private holiday vacation package including your own personal tour-guide in Japan!
