Create an itinerary including Kenrokuen Garden
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. Before you head to Kanazawa, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Kanazawa trip maker website, to make sure you see all that Kanazawa has to offer, including Kenrokuen Garden.

  • I was surprised when my coworkers told me the most popular time to visit this park was during winter. But since visiting, I can see why. It's really beautiful when covered in snow.

  • It was fascinating to see how beautiful this garden was. It was pretty huge and had a lot of different trees and plants! My favorite would be the small island in the middle of the big pond. The place was well maintained. I would highly recommend that people visit this place when they are in Japan.
  • One of the best place to visit when You are in Kanazawa city. It's so beautiful. The perfect example of Japan's art And culture and the mirror of Japan's history. I went here with my best friend in June and enjoyed a lot. We made a memory here. Sweet Memory 😊
