Kenrokuen literally means “Garden of the Six Sublimities”. Looking into Chinese landscape theory, we see the six essential attributes that make up a perfect garden: Spaciousness, Seclusion, Artificiality, Antiquity, Abundant water and Broad views. Kenrokuen is the type of place that words cannot due justice. Once again, we recommended day and evening visit. During the day there is a very cute tea house constructed in 1725 and at night, the lights are simply … sublime.
Kanazawa, Japan is a tourist destination for the Japanese and home to the edo era Higashiyama Higashi Chaya District, the superbly maintained Kanazawa Castle, the best of Kenroku-en gardens and the lovely 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art.
Kanazawa is a lovely city on the northern coast of Japan, on the island of Honshu about 500km and a pleasant Shinkansen train ride form Tokyo. Kanazawa is known for its castle, gardens and three lovely historical edo-era geisha districts.
