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.

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.

One of the most beautiful gardens that I have seen. We have been in the middle of December and part of park was closed, however it is still very good. And there is no much people so you could enjoy park without crowd.

Would definitely recommend you go here while you staying in Kanazawa.

if you want to experience the real beauty of the Japanese garden, you must visit this garden. The beauty is indeed remarkable, and it looks stunning at any time of any season. I suggest taking an early morning walk before the crows hit the spot, and breath in all the purity of the air and take pictures the way you like rather than some timing allows.

Definitely one of the most beautiful garden in Japan. Visited this place in fall season back in 2016 and decided to come back in 2019. The view is simply stunning. Entrance fee is only 310 yen and elders received free entrance. Night illumination entrance is free for all visitors.

A beautiful park with many unique landscapes and views. Just as you finish appreciating one feature, another comes into view. We went early winter when the colours of vibrant green moss dominated the dull conservative trees around and the pond and crystal clear water was crisp and cold.
