Kenrokuen

"The garden of six sublimities": spaciousness, seclusion, artificiality, antiquity, abundant water & broad views make the perfect garden in Kanazawa.

Once the outer grounds of Kanazawa Castle, Kenrokuen is perhaps the most famous and most loved garden in all Japan. This is said to be the perfect example of a landscape garden, beautiful in all the seasons. There are gorgeous vistas at every angle: lily ponds and stone pagodas; wooden bridges and tea houses; streams of koi carp; waterfalls; flowers; Japanese pine trees and delicately placed stones.
