Kenrokuen is one of the Three Great Gardens(Korakuen, Kairakuen, and Kenrokuen) in Japan. Yukitsuri(Snow Suspenders) is a practice in which about 800 rope suspenders are erected from bamboo poles and are attached to tree branches in an effort to protect the trees from the heavy weight of the snow. Yukitsuri usually starts from November 1st. What results is a type of art that is both functional and very cool to look at.

The branches and leaves together with Yukitsuri ropes lit up in the dark create a fantastic atmosphere, and reflection of Yukitsuri on the pond is much beautiful.

My family visited mid November and the late Autumn leaves were magnificent. A beautiful experience and a great way to spend a few hours taking a slow stroll. Amazing amount of care, maintenance and history in these gardens.

Winter, without snow, is really not a good time to visit this famous garden. I could see the potential, only if I had visited in spring or fall. There are quite a lot of old pines trees that looked amazing and the garden is well maintained, especially in preparation for the snow. Nice walk and the entrance fee of 320 yens was very reasonable.

The most beautiful garden I've ever been to! They have a lot of history to the garden as well! It’s one of the three biggest gardens in Japan. Depending on the season you get to enjoy different aspects of the garden. A must see if you come by kanazawa.

This is no doubt one of the most beautiful garden in Japan. The surreal surrounding, with its decoration and horticulture arts really made the place special. Even a photo of a canal taken outside the gate can be so beautiful and nice. Highly recommended to pay a visit here if you are in Kanazawa.

It's a beautiful garden. Right up there with many of the zen gardens that I went to while traveling Japan. We were there in October and everything was still green and lively. It was a lot of fun to walk to all of the areas. It's not as large as Osaka Castle's grounds, so it was a good area to go around in about 2 hours, which is what we had.
