Chuo Mishokugai

A Hidden Jewel of Kanazawa’s Nightlife

It might take you some time to find Chuo Mishokugai among the narrow streets of Kanazawa’s Katamachi district, but consider the search part of the fun. After all, the best things are the ones meant to be discovered, and when you finally stumble into this compact area lined with pubs and bars, you’ll appreciate the effort it took you to get there.

This series of tiny establishments are favored by locals who appreciate the retro “Showa Era atmosphere,” the Golden Age of Japan’s economy that evokes happy memories for many Japanese people. That happiness can be contagious when you step into one and are greeted by one of the friendly owners serving the handful of clientele that can squeeze into the place. Chuo Mishokugai is the perfect place to have a casual conversation with local people and make some new friends while enjoying reasonably priced local dishes served alongside your favorite adult beverages, including Japanese beers and sake.
