Kenroku-en is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. It was built in the Edo period (1603-1868) for the Maeda daimyo clan. It used to be the outer garden of the Kanazawa castle. The garden has a large pond and several panoramic views around it. The oldest fountain of Japan can also be found here.
