Kenrokuen garden, Kanazawa castle enclosure Nagamachi Samurai residence tour


During the Edo period (1603-1867), Kanazawa flourished as a castle town of the Kaga Clan. Kenrokuen garden was a private garden for the Maeda family, feudal lord of Kaga Clan. It presents a different charm in an every different season respectively. Snow covered trees tied with straw ropes(like unfolding an umbrella), blooming flowers and running water in streams, thick green trees and cool breeze, and autumn colors. It is about 11 hectares wide. Strolling around the garden with historic knowledge is really enjoyable. In the Kanazawa castle enclosure, Ishikawamon gate is designated as a national important cultural property. Kahokumon castle gate and Hisiyagura watch tower, and armor food storage building for samurai are restored in recent years.

A Recent Review of this tour

Day 3 of tours with Takashi. He was still pleasant, clear and found many interesting things for us to see in his home town. We couldn't have done it without him! He deserves a day off!
