Kenrokuen Garden, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • 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.

  • This park is larger than I thought it would be. The weather had been hot, and the grass was looking a little worse for wear, but the surroundings were still lovely, and well worth a visit. Once you have paid to enter the park you can leave again, get a stamp, and re-enter later in the day if you wish to. It was a holiday when we were there, so there were lots of people. Even so, we found solitude in some areas, and space for contemplation. I would definitely recommend a visit - set aside at least three hours if you want to really experience it - more time if you can spare it.

  • Excellent garden. Plenty of variety and an enjoyable walk around. We got there early and there were still big crowds so did the palace first which was a good move. The crowds had dissipated a bit by the time we returned and really they thin out the deeper you go in. Can't really complain too much as I was one if the tourists.

  • Best garden in Japan IMO. During Cherry blossom the park is open and beautifully decorated all along. We enjoyed stroll around their place for about 1.5 hours and every place is fascinating and postcard by it's own. Take some snacks and relaxed in one of the areas. Definitely recommended and hopefully we can get back here again

  • This Japanese garden is full of green visitations and water features.we came at the raining season, so the garden is not over crowed. It is quite different than the UK garden as it is much more manicured. However, a lot of sections (especially bridges) are for shows rather than walk across. It is centrally quite unique from what you would see in the West.
