Nomura Samurai House - Review
Nomura family is one of the most prominent families and the Nomura Family Samurai House, was once a residence to them. Today, the house is open for public. The house has the old world charm and a visit to this incredible attraction will assure you a peaceful time. The garden inside the house is scenic and well maintained. The stream which flows in the garden makes for some pretty pictures. The ceiling of the house is graced with paintings made by Maeda family’s painter.

Nomura Samurai House, Kanazawa-shi Reviews
Well worth a visit to give a flavour of how people of this class lived. It is possible to partake of a tea ceremony here if you choose to do so. There are some stairs to climb if you want to fully explore. The garden is beautiful and tranquil. You could spend a long time just absorbing the atmosphere here.
Beautiful samurai house, very peaceful garden. Upstairs you can get delicious match tea served for 300 Y. It's a very nice and relaxing place to visit, far away from the crowd. Apparently it's also in the top 3 most beautiful inner gardens in Japan according to an official ranking!
Every time i visit Kanazawa i visit this place. I love the house as much as its peaceful garden. Recently the western tourist around the samurai district are increasing so the house is not so quiet anymore, but still beautiful.
Incredible slice of history. The Nomura Clan house is incredibly well kept and has many displays showing artifacts from the Edo era. It has a beautiful garden that can be enjoyed in good weather. The house itself is located in the Nagamachi district, near many buildings of similar style (but those are private residences). Get there early to beat the rush as it is a very popular tourist attraction and will get very crowded very quickly. Entrance fee is ¥550.
Ridiculous. We got asked to pay twice the price! The lady pretended her English wasn't good enough when we protested... A steal and rudely operated. As for the actual gardens, looks like there was work going on? Blue plastic covered the ground...? Not to mention the tiny tiny house was filled with masses of tourists with their feet in the gardens. Would not recommend, in any circumstances.
