Kenroku-En is, according to many specialists, one of Japan’s “three most beautiful gardens! Located just in front of Kanazawa Castle, Kenroku-En, was constructed by the ruling Maeda family in 1620 and opened to the public in 1871.
The name Kenroku-En literally means, “the garden of six sublimities”, or one that combines the six aspects of a perfect garden. This ‘measurement’ is based on Chinese gardening tradition and includes : spaciousness, seclusion, artifice, antiquity, water-courses and panoramas. Beautiful all year long, it is however during the sakura (Spring) and koyo (Autumn) seasons that Kenroku-En is truly fantastic, and rest assured we will do our best to shoot another video of this park at point during both these high points.
