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.
Kenrokuen and Kanazawa Castle Park is lit up from 17:30. 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. Light-Up Event is held from February 1st to February 19th 2019, 17:30-21:00.

Just amazing. So much love into these grounds. I would love to spend a lot more time here. Exactly what one would envision a perfect Japanese garden to be. Thank you to the wonderful staff for their amazing work here. Just so much to see. Around every little turn a new world to behold. I feel so lucky to have visited such an incredible place. Thank you, Japan!

One of Japan’s “perfect gardens”, it attracts quite a few tourists. Consider getting a soft serve ice cream from one of the shops near the southeast entrance, it’s been open nearly a hundred years. It’s main selling point is that the ENTIRE head of ice cream is covered in gold leaf. Quite unique.

Highly recommended to visit this garden. Beautiful traditional Japanese style garden. Great for a wander in the afternoon. Excellent place for photos. If you are visiting Kanazawa do add this to your list. Only downside is that it is fairly busy.

A very large Japanese garden which I think is worth checking out only during cherry blossom season. Not much to see when the flowers aren’t blooming. It is good for a great stroll though. Should pair the visit with the adjacent castle grounds as well.

One of Japan's famous zen gardens. Very nice to walk around, but there is a small fee to enter. Enjoyed the way the water, rocks and paths were laid out. Very peaceful but popular with tourists, you may find it very busy at peak hours.
