Kenrokuen Garden is located in the heart of Kanazawa city and is considered one of the three most beautiful gardens in Japan. Originally a private garden for the Maeda family mansion, the garden flourished under their ruling period from the 1620s to 1840s. Located next to the scenic Kanazawa Castle, this stroll-type landscape garden stretches over 100,000 m². As guests walk through the garden, they'll find various hills, streams, ponds, and water falls through the garden grounds. The beauty is enhanced by the seasonal flowers that bloom, including the popular Cherry Blossoms in the spring. In fact, Kenrokuen is a great spot to enjoy cherry blossoms with the castle in the background of the garden.
Take a walk through one of Japan's most beautiful gardens with us this spring or autumn on our fully-escorted line of Takayama Festival Japan Tours and Takayama Hidden Village Tours!
