Event

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.

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.
