SpotNagamachi

A few samurai houses still remain in the Nagamachi Buke Yashikiato area between the Kuratsuki-yosui and Onosho-yosui canals as the area was once the residential district of Kaga clan samurai. Stone-paved alleys wind snakelike along their route flanked by earthen walls. Water from the nearby Saigawa River supplies the Kuratsuki-yosui and Onosho-yosui canals, built to provide water for daily necessities, (including firefighting) to the town and also to act as outer moats during times of conflict.
