Overview of Shinise Memorial Hall

The building that houses Kanazawa ShiniseMemorial Hall, which was once a traditionalmedicine store called Nakaya Pharmacy, wasdonated to the City of Kanazawa by the Nakayafamily in 1987. The city has preserved theculturally valuable exterior of the building, whilealso refurbishing the mise-no-ma (storefront), thusrestoring the appearance of a feudal-periodpharmacy. The museum opened on April 1st,1988 as a facility to showcase the traditionalculture of Kanazawa's townspeople.
The Nakaya family's traditional medicine shopwas established in 1579 by Hikobe Nakaya, andby the early feudal period the family had built atypical merchant house in the formerMinami-cho. The family was bestowed the honorof filling the court's medical prescriptions by thefifth-generation Maeda lord, Maeda Tsunanori,and thereafter, successive generations of theNakaya family were highly respected by thepeople of the city.
Prior to the relocation of the building, thecurrent merchant house was erected in honor ofthe Meiji Emperor's visit in 1878, andsubsequently renovated in 1919.
