The Kenrokuen garden is one of the three most famous Japanese gardens.
The garden was designed to reflect the desire of the feudal lord Maeda,
the second largest local lord after the Tokugawa shogunate. The 5th lord
Maeda started the construction in 1676. It was expanded to the present
largeness by the generations of the lord Maeda. The garden is a strolling-style
landscape garden. The garden has six characteristics, which is the origin
of the name of the garden. They are spaciousness, the atmosphere of deep
mountains and valleys, meticulous gardening technique, long history, abundant
water and wide view. We also walk to Kanazawa castle enclosure to see Ishikawamon
gate, newly restored Hishiyagura watch tower and Kahokumon gate.
