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.

If you are lucky, visit in winter just after a good dusting of snow early in the morning. Enchanting. Otherwise, if you are equally lucky, you might catch it in spring during the few days when the cherry blossoms are at there best. Otherwise autumn. Most probably you will see it in summer when it will still be a nice park to visit but crowded... and hot.

We visited in February on a snowy day - it was freezing yet so amazing that we spent nearly 4 hours there in the cold. Every part of the garden felt so 'japanese'. Moss was thriving everywhere even during winter. Majestic pine trees everywhere. Will definitely return!

Impressive gardens even in winter. We visited in mid January after it had been lightly snowing. Spent two hours there just before closing time with very few people around. This place is worth a visit if you'd like to see a great garden.

A must visit place. So much beauty concentrated throughout the garden. True to it's tag of perfect garden, it really is perfect. It's nicely maintained trees and plants, scenic ponds, well placed statues and and not many buildings in the premises that makes it all the more beautiful. Make time to visit this place if you are in Japan.

A very beautiful garden, well kept and nurtured trees. You can feel the love, respect for the nature and care on the garden. Every tree has a story and unique in character. You will be awed with the sight. The moss adds character to the landscape. I only wished I have more time to explore and enjoy the garden.
