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.

  • If you want to experience the old culture of Japan, you should definitely see it. Beautifully preserved and maintained mansions and gardens are worth seeing even for a fee. It is cheap considering the maintenance cost. It is not unreasonable, but since the knowledge of Japanese houses of foreign countries is scarce, I think that there are many things to see especially around the entrance, but let's teach manners by all means with all Japanese people. It is very pleased to teach.

  • Pretty house, it's not like you understand much about samurai life. They are very limited in explanations in English. It would have been nice for them to explain how they lived. The garden is very nice. Nice neighborhood, but commercial, but not going there would be a shame
