A Japanese garden Loved By A Lord Of A Great Dominion Kaga

Kenrokuen Garden is a symbolic spot of Kanazawa, which has easy access for the opening of Hokuriku Shinkansen Superexpress. For they often have light-up event in a year, I think it's good to visit during such events. I like especially autumn! I took the first pic in autumn, the second in winter.

The bus following a circular route from Kanazawa Station is useful!

Spring Lighting Of Kenrokuen Garden, One Of The Three Best Japanese Gardens

Kenrokuen is a representative of the gardens formed in Edo Period (around 1600-1800), and one of the three best Japanese gardens the same as Korakuen in Okayama and Kairakuen in Ibaraki. What's more, having as many as 420 cherry trees in the garden, Kenrokuen is also one of the 100 best cherry blossom spots in Japan. During the cherry blossom season, they open the garden for free and extend the opening hours. I'm so happy about it!

The Oldest Fountain in Japan Made By Natural Water-Pressure

The oldest fountain is made by water pressure from elevation difference of the pond as own source. And it is made in the Edo period, so I'm surprised at the skill.
