Shigure-tei Teahouse

A garden within a garden at Kenroku-en

Mandy Bartok   - 1 min read

The Shigure-tei Teahouse sits in the middle of Kenroku-en, Kanazawa's stunning traditional stroll garden. Yet another, more hidden, garden sits within the hedged borders of the teahouse property. It can be viewed while enjoying a cup of macha tea and a traditional wagashi sweet or simply from a large tatami room that often welcomes large tour groups. After your refreshment, feel free to step out onto the polished veranda for a better look at the meticulously tended garden.
