Kenrokuen Winter Light-Up

The weather has been awful lately, but nothing in Kanazawa is more beautiful in the winter than Kenrokuen (兼六園) in the snow!

Kenrokuen’s FREE winter light-up will be held

Friday, 4 February, to Sunday, 6 February 2011


Thursday, 10 February, to Sunday, 13 Feb. 2011 (including the holiday on Friday, 11 Feb., Constitution Day)

from 17:30-21:00 each night. (Last entry at 20:45.)


Take the bus bound for “Kenrokuen shita” (兼六園下) from Kanazawa Station (East Gate bus-boarding area #3; West Gate bus-boarding area #4); get off at Kenrokuen-shita (兼六園下). The Kanazawa Loop Bus and the Flat Bus (look for the signs in English by the East Exit).

From Kanazawa Station, it’s about a 25 minute walk to Kenrokuen via Korinbo (香林坊).

Leah Zoller is a second-year CIR in Anamizu and the editor of this blog. She thinks Kenrokuen in the snow is one of the only redeeming factors of the Ishikawa winter.
