Kenrokuen Garden, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • Perfect place to roam around and best place to relax.. overlooking to the city very fresh air area is very clean. And the trees are so beautiful. Best season to visit is fall.

  • Advertised as one of the most beautiful landscape gardens in Japan, this certainly lived to its reputation. Even with lots of tourists in the park, there are lots of quieter paths where you can enjoy the park without the crowds. There are several small cafes in the park which were reasonably priced, and provide essential refreshment if you decide to visit this in the heat of the summer!

  • As one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, it's obviously worth a stop, or really a special trip to Kanazawa in general if Japanese gardens are your jam. There are numerous pathways, large and small, meandering throughout, with thousands of unique vantage points to view the gardens. It really is spectacular. Though many, many exemplary gardens obviously exist in Japan, there are few that show on such a grand scale. If nothing else, come see and contemplate the work that went into sculpting so many truly ancient trees, by generations of dedicated gardeners, for hundreds of years. It's really remarkable.

  • Fantastic gardens. So many interesting aspects, you should plan a good hour to really explore, or more if you want to sit and relax. The gardens and adjacent castle are a must-see.

  • a great garden to be immersed in Japanese culture. The garden includes several sub-areas. Each aims to incarnate a special flavor of Japanese specificity, while altogether they reflect the builders' ambition to contain six artistic essences. The two day combo admission to both the Kenroku-en (兼六園) and the Kanazawa Castle Park (金沢城公園) costs 500 yen. Separate one day admission is 310 yen each.
