Nomura House is a restored samurai residence from the era when samurai were prosperous. The Nomura were a high ranking samurai family who, like many other samurai, lost their fortune when Japan's feudal era came to an end during the Meiji Period. There is a beautiful, small garden to walk through. Centrally located in the Nagamachi District and open from 8:30am to 5:30 (closes and hour early in the winter) Entrance fee: 550 yen.

The entrance to this samurai house is free, and I must admit we got here because I read "Maeda Toshiie" (did I mention we are huge history nerds?). Actually Lord Toshiie granted the Nomura family money used to build this samurai house: it has been retained for 12 generations by the Nomura, up to the Meiji Restoration.
The house isn't big, there are small areas that you can explore, with English explanations, and a beautiful garden with a cute little pond.
It's also one of the best preserved samurai houses in Kanazawa, so definitely worth a visit (even if you aren't a history nerd)!

This is worth it just for the garden. I went an hour before closing and they practically had to shoo me out. It's such a relaxing, peaceful place. The house itself is okay but unless you're coming with a guide, there's not a lot of information.
