Kenrokuen Garden, one of Japan's three most famous gardens, is a vivid picture of the harmony between nature and people. The name "Kenrokuen" means "having six elements", expressing the diversity and perfection of beauty here. With an area of 11.4 hectares, the garden is located in the center of Kanazawa, next to Kanazawa Castle.

Natural Wonders: Kasumigaike Pond and Horai Island
One of Kenrokuen Garden's biggest attractions is the large man-made pond Kasumigaike and Horai Island in the middle. The pond is considered a symbol of the sea, while Horai Island is a symbol of the sacred island offshore. The story tells that a young monk with magical powers lived on this island. The pond and island symbolize the lord's eternal life and prosperity.

Summer brings a cool feeling with azaleas and irises. In autumn, the garden sparkles with the yellow colors of fallen red and yellow leaves. In winter, the garden becomes a stunning snow-covered spectacle with traditional yukitsuri techniques protecting plants from snow.
