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.
The autumn leaves time is such a beautiful time to visit Kanazawa Castle area. It includes few parks, small and large.
Admission of Kanazawa Castle Park is free. Have 3-4 hours to enjoy it. Do not forget your camera)
The actual palace was never built again after It was destroyed. The only portion left was the look it area. You have to pay to go in. Not really worth it
There is a free English guide. 30min to explain. Well worth It to engage...More

Kanazawa Castle Park is a must see when you're a tourist visiting Japan. The castle look beautiful and majestic. The castle lights up at night which gives you a different look. It looks beautiful especially with a light drizzle/ shower.
The park around the castle is very large and expansive with many open spaces and also sitting areas in the shade. The park provides good photo spots for anywhere around the castle and appears to be a good exercise place for locals and tourists walking...More
