Kenrokuen Garden is located next to Kanazawa Castle Park. It is a vast Japanese garden of 11.7 hectares that is known as one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan, and has been rated 3 stars in the Michelin Guide. In contrast to the snowy landscape during the winter, plants in the large garden begin to come alive immediately after the long winter has passed, as if they have been waiting for spring. 200 red and white plum trees and more than 400 cherry trees are situated strategically around the garden. The cherry blossoms are illuminated to be enjoyed at night as well, making it an ideal time to view the night time cherry blossoms in combination with Kanazawa Castle Park.
