Reflecting the unique culture of the Kaga area and a Historic Cultural Heritage Site, the Kenrokuen is considered one of Japan's three most beautiful gardens. An excursion-style garden built around a central pond (called Kasumiga-ike Pond), the garden's miniature mountains (including Yamazaki-yama Hill) and island (named Horai-jima) are covered with Japanese maples, cherry trees, zelkovas, and other trees, and during the peak period from mid-November to early December, visitors can enjoy stunning fall foliage.

Ishikawa Main Areas
Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
