Explore the natural scenery and nooks and crannies in Kenrokuen Garden, a sprawling park that once served as the outer gardens of Kanazawa Castle. Ponds, bridges, and teahouses punctuate the grounds, full of blossoming trees and walking trails. Look for Japan's oldest fountain, which operates via natural water pressure, and for Flying Geese Bridge, made of eleven individual stones that mimic geese flying in formation. A pedestrian way outside the garden's paid entrance is lined with picturesque shops and restaurants.

We stayed at Hotel mount Swan road the next morning, I went to take a walk early in the morning. Bathed in the Sun but cold with scattered among and 6 garden, become very Holy and peaceful feeling. And enthusiasm always seemed to be local people who are passing and the Kanazawa I came to love.
