Kanazawa's Kenrokuen Garden Tour is a must do for those wishing to experience the perfect Japanese garden.
Since the Edo Era (1603~) Kenrokuen Garden has been regarded as one of the most beautiful feudal gardens in all Japan. There is so much to see, such as the Kotoji-toro (lantern with features of a Japanese ‘harp’), the island with the ageless hermit, the lake and natural water fountain, the tea houses, and so much more. Plum and cherry blossoms can be seen in spring, azaleas and irises in early summer, leaves with hues of red and yellow in autumn/fall, and snow and yukizuri (traditional snow ropes) in winter. Let Kanazawa Walking Tours transform your time there into a breathtaking experience!
