Explore the natural scenery and nooks and crannies in Kenrokuen Garden, a sprawling park that once served as the outer gardens of Kanazawa Castle. Ponds, bridges, and teahouses punctuate the grounds, full of blossoming trees and walking trails. Look for Japan's oldest fountain, which operates via natural water pressure, and for Flying Geese Bridge, made of eleven individual stones that mimic geese flying in formation. A pedestrian way outside the garden's paid entrance is lined with picturesque shops and restaurants.

  • Despite an overcast sky, the beauty of this garden has enchanted us. You could spend hours wandering these aisles and each time, on a point of view or a different light, it's a new show. Maybe you will be lucky to cross a few local in kimono, where uniformed gardeners? And in this case the show will be total. Brief to 300 yen per head is not to be missed as it is in town go there on foot easily.

  • Every tree and plant in this garden is meticulously trimmed and shaped to create a peaceful, serene atmosphere. Blooming cherry blossoms were gorgeous as were all the huge pine and cypress trees.  more »
