Kanaya-machi (Rows of latticed houses) 金屋町(格子造りの家並み)

A town of charming latticed houses and stone streets in perfect harmony

Shortly after Toshinaga Maeda, lord of the Kaga clan, founded the castle town of Takaoka, he encouraged casting production as a stimulus measure. This brought substantial prosperity to Kanaya-machi, the cradle of Takaoka’s casting. Thanks to its old latticed houses and nostalgic atmosphere, Kanaya-machi’s townscape often appears in film and TV dramas. The 500m long stone road and old latticed houses complement each other superbly and the whole area transports you back to the Meiji and Taisho periods, while still looking beautiful today.
