Kenrokuen Garden

Kenrokuen Garden lies in the center of Kanazawa like a precious green jewel.
Master craftsmen labored for over 150 years to perfect one of the most renowned gardens in all of Japan.
Hours slip by as you wander the dozens of paths that wind through the groves and around the lakes. In the sultry summer months, you can find cool refuge in the leafy grottoes. At its best in the early morning or late afternoon, Kenrokuen's subtle beauty can be appreciated throughout the four seasons. The garden is a popular site for cherry blossom viewing in the spring.
