Kenrokuen Garden 兼六園

Kenrokuen Garden, which is located in the Ishikawa Prefecture, is one of the three most famous gardens in Japan. It is said that in 1676, the Lord of the Kaga domain, Maeda Tsunanori, built his own villa on the former grounds of the castle workshop and turned the surrounding area into a garden. The primary winter attraction of Kenrokuen Garden is snow fishing and in winter the water has a golden shimmer that dances across it. In spring, you can take a walk through the garden while enjoying the view of the cherry blossoms. The garden is crowded with many tourists throughout the year. If you join them for a visit, you can also enjoy Kenrokuen gourmet tea, such as matcha tea, at one of the many teahouses in the park.
