It's a nice garden to walk and the entrance is free. If yo want to visit the castle at the inside you have to pay. But you can buy a combined ticket for the Castle and the Kenroku-en garden.

A big park with the majestic Kanazawa Castle in the foreground. Though is winter, the autumn color adds charm to the entire park. The ground is pretty big. Do set aside one to two hours to take a slow stroll in the park.

Visited here as part of our Essence of Japan tour with Titan. It was a lovely garden to stroll around during November 2018. The sun was shining and it was nice and warm. The pools reflected the autumnal colours of the trees too. I wish...More
