You’ll soon be feeling the nostalgia of Kanazawa.
Kanazawa is one of the few cities where traditional geisha still exist.
Due to their strict admittance policies, however, you most likely would not be able to attend one of their performances without some difficulty. In the Higashi Chayagai district, the establishment Kaikaro offers visitors the opportunity to appreciate a geisha performance inside their authentic teahouse built nearly 200 years ago. It’s open to all!

Kaikaro is the largest geisha house in Kanazawa which was built nearly 200 years ago. Many tourists from around the world visit its building to relish in the architectural techniques, the artistic interiors, and the Japanese atmosphere.
