Kenrokuen
兼六園

  • Historic Sites

Kenrokuen is the Japanese garden built for a long time by Maeda Family

who governed this area more than 400 years ago.

Trees are planted around a big pond in the garden, which is made to create the beauty of nature.

It is easy to get because it is adjacent with the Kanazawa castle site.

There is Seisonkaku Villa in the garden and a feudal lord prepared it for his wife as a retiring place.
