Japan -> Kanazawa -> Higashi Pleasure District
Higashi Pleasure District
Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture
Kanazawa has three old geisha districts and Higashi-chaya-gai, established in 1820, is one of the finest. Fancy restaurants and galleries hide behind wood latticed windows and old-fashioned street lamps. These lamps and buildings have remained unchanged since the 19th century. The Shima Geisha House is a pleasant old geisha house that has remained untouched. The upper floor has guest rooms with small stages where the geishas would perform, while the lower floor housed living quarters.
