Round JPN [ Day 24 ]

Kanazawa, Ishikawa

There is “Higashi-Chayagai” on the east side of the Asano River. This district which means the east tea stalls street was part of the castle town and has a history of 200 years.

From early evening, the soft tones of Japanese flutes, drums, and banjo, called samisen, would reach your ears along with the murmur of the stream. For a long time, the people here have done regular practice in Noh chants and the whole area started being called ’a street where songs fall from the sky’. 

Training, mastery, and the initiation from person to person. The graceful melody still falls on the street nightly and adds a flavor to the area.
