Kenrokuen Garden|The Most Beautiful Garden in Japan

Temple in Kanazawa Japan

I woke up around 6:00am and went downstairs to have a coffee. We had some complementary breakfast, before heading out on our adventures for the day, around 8am.

We set out towards the famous Kenrokuen garden. It cost 310 Yen each to enter.

The Kenrokuen garden is said to be one of the top 3 most beautiful gardens in the world, along with one in the Netherlands, and one in China.

We saw cherry and plum blossoms in the garden. Everything was so vivid and green, like nature had bumped up the contrast levels in the garden. There was green moss everywhere!

We then walked back to our hostel, K’s House Kanazawa, and checked out. We took the orange loop bus back to Kanazawa station which cost 200 Yen each. It was a nice break from walking everywhere with our backpacks. The bus ride took 13 minutes and we arrived at Kanazawa Station at 11:02am, in time to catch the 11:24am train (Thunderbird) to Osaka. The train took about 2 hours and 40 minutes to arrive at Shin-Osaka station (not Osaka Station, but just outside the city). (To Book Train Travel in Japan Click Here)
