Visitors can experience the teahouse culture of the Edo period

Shima – Kansoan(Kanazawa, Ishikawa)

Shima – A National Important Cultural Property located in Higashi Chayagai, Kanazawa City. This esteemed teahouse was built in the Edo period in 1820.

Preserving its graceful architecture from that era, Shima offers a rare opportunity to experience Kanazawa’s traditional teahouse culture. Immerse yourself in the elegant ambiance that was once a place where geisha entertained their guests, and savor the unique atmosphere of a bygone era.

Within a separate building of Shima lies the tearoom called Kansoan. Here, you can enjoy matcha tea and Japanese sweets while gazing at the tranquil garden, all in a serene setting.

As Kansoan tends to be relatively quieter right after opening, it is recommended for those seeking a leisurely tea time to arrive early and fully savor the experience.
