Nagamachi (長町) is a former area of residence for the samurai of Kanazawa close to Kanazawa Castle with narrow canals and stone paths. Some of the homes are open to the public (some are free; others charge a small entrance fee), and there is also a small museum showing how the merchant class used to live, complete with a reconstructed old style pharmacy, tea room, traditional garden, and displays of local handicrafts.
