A unesco heritage site known as one of the three most beautiful gardens in Japan... and it is. Expect to spend from 2 to 3 hours depending on your relationship with nature.

Very peaceful and zen garden to let go of your feelings. Best to go on a sunny day, but still nonetheless beautiful when cloudy. A must visit if you visit Kanazawa, and bring a camera!

This famous garden is supposed to look beautiful in any weather/season. We put that to the test in March while it was raining and slushy. I’ve been to other Japanese gardens that look beautiful in the rain, but this one was just so-so. I’ll check back again in warmer weather to see if things have improved.

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.
