Not surprisingly, Tea House Street is all about tea and a pleasant wander along the street shows off the old merchant houses, many decorated with ornate tree and flower displays

We walked along the restaurant district with its traditional houses from the feudal days, and took some photos but it wasn't that big or an absolute must do.

There are some public bus going to there or near there, but I recommend to use your foots. There is the Oumicho-ichiba on the way. It takes 20 minutes on foot from Kanazawa Station to the Kazuemachi-chayagai district.
