Kanazawa’s Kenrokuen Garden is one of Japan’s three representatives landscape gardens, along with Korakuen in Okayama and Kairakuen in Mito. The entire garden took over 180 years to fully complete, and features ponds, streams, many plants and more.
The garden is an attractive site year-round, with cherry blossoms in the spring and snowy landscape in the winter. The yuki-tsuri (tree protecting apparatus) light up event in the winter is one of the most anticipated events at Kenrokuen every year.
