The Higashi Chaya District (ひがし茶屋街) is a traditional teahouse district east of Kanazawa Station which known for its geisha performances. Comprising song and dance, these were a historical fixture at the local chaya teahouses since the Edo Period. This eastern district is just one of three in Kanazawa—alongside Nishi Chayagai and Kazuemachi—but Higashi is by far the largest and most well-known.
