Garden Park Must See
Explore the natural scenery and nooks and crannies in Kenrokuen Garden, a sprawling park that once served as the outer gardens of Kanazawa Castle. Ponds, bridges, and teahouses punctuate the grounds, full of blossoming trees and walking trails. Look for Japan's oldest fountain, which operates via natural water pressure, and for Flying Geese Bridge, made of eleven individual stones that mimic geese flying in formation. A pedestrian way outside the garden's paid entrance is lined with picturesque shops and restaurants.

  • I explore the light up a little while ago, so go for the first time, try to relax until the light is illuminated during the evening at 17:00 once closed down was heard and the re-entry to re-entry time wait. Admission was 300 yen and free entrance was lit up times. Outdoor peeing By paying money so you want to look nice. To be limited, but could make enough.

  • Was looking forward to in three great gardens of Japan, but was relatively normal. Tea drinking green tea was a building feel the history.
