The entry fee is 200yen, and all free after, if you return a bicycle to a designated cycle port.

Departed from Kanazawa station port, just behind Hotel Nikko.


Running through Nagamachi street,

and reached to Nishi-chayagai.

Arrived in 13 minutes, and I returned the bicycle at the port here.
Therefore the charge is free.

A chaya room, for entertaining with Geisha.


I bought some sweets and found it started raining.

I could come back by bus, but the rain was not so hard.
I used the bicycle back again.
Sometimes the rain was heavy, and I got wet.

I wanted to stop by several spots but that will be the next time.
