Kenrokuen Garden, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • Amazing garden, a great place to go for a walk and enjoy a bit of peace! There are a number of ponds and the garden is split into a number of sections. A map is provided upon entry to assist you in planning your walk. There are a couple of Tea houses to enjoy a traditional Japanese tea with ceremony.

  • Very nice view. The park is very well decorated and maintained, just as the Japanese style. The most iconic Japanese style of protecting the tree branches broken by heavy snow accumulation just become a nice decoration for the trees. Best view would be early morning or late afternoon. And probably best time of the year would be spring or autumn.

  • Beautiful garden that is definitely worth a visit. We went during winter, and it was still incredible to appreciate how old the gardens are. It wasn't I'm it's full glory, but I imagine it would be beautiful during spring and autumn months, and we still enjoyed it despite this.

  • Beautiful any season and a must if you are in the area. Just walking around with no particular agenda is the best way to absorb Kenroku-en. Spring time gets busy with the cherry blossom viewing but there are still quiet areas around. Braving the snowy winter will be worthwhile when the trees are tied down. Free entrance over the New Year's Holiday period is a bonus.

  • Stunning, Stunning, Stunning. Allow yourself at least a couple of hours to enjoy all the beautiful features of the garden. It's easy to see why this is one of top 3 gardens in Japan. It would be stunning all year around. Even in the rain (as it was today). ¥310 entry per adult. Certain times of the year they have it lit up, free entry after 5:30pm.
