How should we welcome guests visiting the town of Kanazawa?
Deep contemplation of this question leads to the heart of Chanoyu. Kanazawa,
a town where people have gathered since ancient times, has a spirit (Machigokoro)
that resembles the personality of an individual. Agora Kanazawa is a hotel where
you can experience the essence of culture through contact with Kanagawa's Machigokoro.
By experiencing Machigokoro through contact with the people who convey the culture,
you will experience a stay immersed in the culture that transcends simple tourism.
Kanazawa, the castle town of Kaga Hyakumangoku, is a rare town that has deepened its culture over the years.
Kanazawa has long been a town of samurai culture, created by samurai, in which song and Chanoyu tea culture are cherished but this culture was also enjoyed by the local commoners. It is a city in Japan with a particularly rich culture. Many rich cultural crafts survive to this day in Kanazawa. The long held spirit of craftsmanship is a beautiful crystallization of Kanazawa's Machigokoro.
