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.

Easily one of greatest gardens I've ever witnessed. Tons of sakura trees in blossom and beautifully maintained grounds. I would love to see this spot again! Just as beautiful after the sun goes down as well. Their are spotlights to highlight many parts of the garden.

Beautiful garden. Small entrance fee but definitely well worth it. I was fortunate enough to see sakura in full bloom and it was breathtaking. Would highly recommend going in early morning (8am) to beat the crowds.

Beautiful Japanese garden. Very clear pond, well maintained. Wish the weather was better due to it rains and snow at the same time so we didnt get to see a lot from the garden. But def worth a visit.

BEAUTIFUL. This is ranked way up there in terms of the best garden I've ever set foot and seen. Everything about it is so delicate but yet so grand (and I never thought I would use such a word describing a garden). I came here just before spring and the flowers were starting to blossom. I could take a book and sit here all day and soak up the atmosphere. Strongly recommend you set aside 1/2 hours to walk and not rush through the experience.

One of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen!!! Could spend a few hours just walking around peacefully. Don't miss out on this one.
