Special Place of Scenic Beauty Kenrokuen (特別名勝兼六園)
One Three Great Gardens of Japan—along with Mito’s Kairaku-en and Okayama’s Koraku-en—Kenrokuen is located in Kenroku Town, Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The garden maintains many characteristics of the Edo period kaiyu rinsen-style gardens, with notable sites like Kasumigaike Pond, Ganko (Flying Geese) Bridge, and Kotoji-toro. Many visitors come by each spring, as the Yoshino cherry, Higan cherry, Sato-zakura cherry and other cherry trees blossom. Early to mid-April is usually peak season. Kenrokuen is open from 7:00 to 18:00 (Extended to 21:30 on some days between March and October 15th). The admission fee is 310 yen for adults and 100 yen for persons 6 years old–17 years old. Toilets, shops and nearby parking available.
