Real beauty of a castle grounds, I could totally see myself ruling a kingdom from this place. An absolute fortress, I did not notice until my second visit a day later, but upon exiting from beneath the bridge that leads to the Kenroku-en Garden, if you walk alongside that stone road beneath the bridge to the other side of the castle grounds, there is a moat, sort of, ha ha. The castle grounds from every angle really puts into perspective how massive this place was.

Throughout the park there is also several outdoor exhibits that highlight the architecture and building techniques used to build the walls and parts of the castle. Even some neat cross sections of how they were built.

Custodians tending to the property do an outstanding job, I am not too familiar with standards a caretaker takes in other castles or temples, but watching one custodian gently brush the moss with a broom and remove all the fallen pine needles and debris from the moss, a section of ground so remote I don’t think anyone would have appreciated, really says something about the care this site receives. I can not comment on how the staff feel about it of course, but judging from the smile on the one custodians face, I can’t help but feel he was happy to be doing what he does.

Overall, awesome place to walk around and explore with several nice vantage points for viewing the surrounding city and mountains of Kanazawa.

Also, I went during 20°C day in Feb which was nice, but brutally warm. And a second time during cloudy day with light rain. If I had to choose, easily cloudy day with rain, place and surrounding area look so much richer in colour and atmosphere. Nature just bursts into action when it’s raining here and as a bonus, no crowds! :)

Beautiful way to spend a morning or an afternoon here. We got a tour guide who spoke English from the information booth and it was good. Informative. Go to the garden area behind the armoury house near the rest house. You can get gorgeous views from the top.

Nice place to take a relaxing stroll while in Kanazawa. The park is very spacious with a lot of open areas. Rest rooms are scattered across the park which is convenient. The track around the park also make it ideal for running. No bicycles allowed within the park grounds.

We had a really nice Japanese gentleman who spoke English who took us on a guided tour of the castle grounds. It c was lovely to talk to a local who gave us a funny perspective on the historical grounds. He even sang us a sing.

The park grounds are free, while the castle itself has a small fee to enter. You can purchase a combo ticket with kenroku-en garden. It's a nice place to walk around. The castle museum has many interesting exhibits explaining the construction of the castle and its history. Descriptions are available in English, so don't worry about the language barrier. There's an elevator inside the castle for accessibility.

One of the highlights of our trip. I enjoyed seeing the construction of the walls including original vs rebuilt/modern areas. There is a nice visitor area with seating and public toilets. There are a few buildings you can enter too though I didn't see any signs explaining things, so I was happy we had a local guide.

Stunning Castle complex with immaculately kept and beautiful surrounding park walks and gardens. The 3 dimensional garden” is one of the most beautiful things we’ve seen.

Fabulous grounds and gardens surround this castle. Well worth a few visits as you cannot take it all in on one day!

This is such a beautiful park during cherry blossom season. The grass is super clean and you can sit anywhere to enjoy a small picnic. They also have benches if you prefer that. The Sakura trees here have a beautiful mix of white and pink colors. We spent quite a lot of time here when we were supposed to enter the castle. Even after going into the garden, we still feel like you could enjoy the cherry blossom just in the park.

Kanazawa Castle Park was nice to visit during both the day and night. During the day more parts are open you can walk and explore and at night it nice to see the all the lights. Definitely worth a visit if you get the chance.

An incredible park so nice so big to explore. You will find there so many spots for pictures and the castle is amazing itself you can go inside and feel the atmosphere, also to imagine how it was in the past to feel the battles and the spirit. Absolutely stunning and highly recommended

This place is magnificent.
There's so much to see, we spent 3 hours and we could have spent 5 or 6 easily. This doesn't include the garden.
You can learn so much from the self guided tours you can take through many of the main buildings.
There are many brief but informative plaques with information on them located at the various places.
If you're disabled you can still see pretty much everything, they have wheelchair facilities.
I would definitely recommend going here.
An easy 5 out of 5.

Historic castle grounds. Amazing how they build this castle with no nails used. Entering of main castle has an entrance fee but the castle ground has none. Wide and spacious castle park to go to with your family to stroll around and see the beautifully made castle. Thankful I had the chance to visit there even if it rained that day.
