Travel Guide - Kenroku-en Garden

InformationInformation

Kenroku-en Garden, first laid out in 1676 and enlarged to its present size of about 10 ha. in the early 1800s, was an outer garden of Kanazawa Castle. It took 180 years to complete. The garden is considered one of the three most beautiful landscape gardens in Japan along with Kairaku-en in Mito and Koraku-en in Okayama.
True to the name of Kenroku, or "Combined Six", it boasts six prominent features, namely, vastness, solemnity, careful arrangement, venerability, coolness (induced by running water) and scenic charm.
