Kenroku-en was created in 1822 and is considered to be one of Japan's three most beautiful landscaped gardens. The name 'Kenroku-en' literally means 'Garden of the Six Sublimities', referring to the six attributes that make up a perfect garden: spaciousness, seclusion, artificiality, antiquity, abundant water and broad views. This garden used to be the outer garden of Kanazawa Castle and was constructed over a period of two centuries. It features various ponds, streams, waterfalls, bridges, teahouses, trees, stones and flowers. During the spring, cherry blossoms are wonderful here, followed by irises in the summer. By autumn, Japanese maples colour the garden with rich yellow, red, purple and brown.
