Traditional house near Kanazawa station

The samurai style town house built 70 years ago was refurbished so that it is cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

In order to satisfy the guests who stayed and to improve the luck of the guests, we set up an object that feels Japan from ancient times in the inn.
We would be pleased if "Kanazawa Machiya Aburaya" also developed with guests.

Traditional culture of Kanazawa

The traditional culture of Kanazawa was carefully nurtured during the clan government era, and the modernity was passed on glamor and grace.
In Kanazawa, cultures that can not be seen in other prefectures are fostered, and you can feel unique glamor. Guests can also enjoy their unique culture in "Kanazawa Machiya Aruba".
We are waiting for the guest who wants to experience different from the Western hotel.


 Wall of "Ultramarine" 

In Kanazawa, there is a tradition of using ultramarine on the wall of the house, using a vivid, flashy ultramarine color rather than a pale ultramarine color.
It is said that the roots of this wallpaper is the Seisonkaku for wife was built in 1863 by the 13th generation Kaga lord, Maeda Nariyasu.
This ultramarine room, it was considered to be a seat for high social status. At the Meiji period, people was rich in Kanazawa began to use it, and eventually it became used in the habitation room for guests even in the residence of the general public.
There are various opinions, but it seems that it was used in Kanazawa where the snow falls in winter, the gray sky covers, and the inside of the house wants to make it a gorgeous atmosphere.
This ultramarine color is also incorporated into the green car of the Hokuriku Shinkansen.

 Wall of "Vermilion" 

Just like the ultramarine wall, the vermilion wall is also a unique culture of Kanazawa.
It seems that we used vermillion which is warm color in snow deep Kanazawa, in order to soften the coldness of winter visually too.
The vermillion wall with glossy feeling went spread from the Maeda family of lords to a samurai residence, then to a restaurant, a town house, a Ochaya.
Even now, in the restaurants and Ochaya in Ishikawa Prefecture, vermillion walls are also used and you can experience the fantastic atmosphere of the time.

You can also enjoy this unique culture of Kanazawa at Kanazawa Machiya Aburaya.
