South Route

Nishi Chaya District

Nishi Chaya District is located along the old Hokkoku Kaido Road running towards Kanazawa Castle, before crossing the Saigawa River. The hanamachi (geisha district) was authorized simultaneously with Higashi Chaya District in 1820. It is still known as an entertainment quarter across Japan. Remarkably enough, the geisha call-office there is a western-style building. Nishi Chaya Shiryokan Museum is worth a visit.

Many places to take photos!
