Kenrokuen Garden Kanazawa
... magnificent gardens, whether dry gardens in Zen temples or gardens like Kenrokuen exquisitely landscaped and cared for, a treasure land of trees and flowers for nature lovers, a lovely (although artificial pond).
A lovely, immaculately manicured park with a variety of plants, trees, and shrubs This is a must-see location.
2 Ways to experience it
Stop whenever you feel the urge - park alongside the waves away from traffic - and you have the moment to yourself.
Excellent nature walk around the river.
It is a short walk in a circle but you are feeling as if nature made the place.
The staff there spoke very good English and only too happy to explain its history – it was apparently once an equestrian centre and part of the local university, and now a part of the Kanazawa Castle Park for all.
Staring at it and walking on the rock path into the sea is a lovely peaceful exercise - its also nice to sit on the beach/park, and ring the "lovers" bell that frames the island from the shore.
There is a little park there, I would imagine it is a nice spot to picknick in summer
Rokkosaki Suzu
You should park nearby parking station (called "Michi No Eki" in Japanese) if you come by car.
The park provides good photo spots for anywhere around the castle and appears to be a good exercise place for locals and tourists walking around and enjoying the site.
The Kanazawa Castle Park is just over a small bridge opposite the Kenrokuen Garden.
Mt. Utatsu Kanazawa
From the famous (and heavily visited) Higashi Chaya district, it is not too far of a walk up the hills to a series of parks and pathways with some nice surprises, hidden shrines and great views.
Whats great is the park by the beach.
