Kenroku-en (Six Attributes Garden), located in Kanazawa, Ishikawa, Japan, is an old private garden. Along with Kairaku-en in Mito-city, and Koraku-en in Okayama-city, Kenroku-en is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan.

According to the ancient Chinese book of gardens, there should be six different sublime qualities to which a garden can aspire. Grouped in their traditional complementary pairs, they are spaciousness(宏大), seclusion(幽邃), artific(人力), antiquity(蒼古), water-courses(水泉), panoramas(眺望). As might be imagined, it is difficult enough to find a garden that is blessed with any three or four of these desirable attributes, let along five, or even more rarely, all six. Yet that is just the case here, where as the name “Kenroku-en” literally means “garden that combines six characteristics”, which is named by Sadanobu Matsudaira, a feudal load in the present Tohoku district.

The grounds are open year-round during daylight hours and famous for its beauty in all seasons. I am really exited to meet you in Kenroku-en, I have a lot to show you beauty of Japanese Garden.
