Capture Autumn in Beautiful Area of Ishikawa

As summer approaches to its end, it will soon be time for autumn foliage in many places in Japan, including Kanazawa. Kenrokuen (兼六園) is one of the most popular spot among those visiting Kanazawa. However, there are many more places we recommend for you to enjoy the feel of fall.

Take a look at our recommendation and plan your autumn trip to Ishikawa prefecture this November!

Kenrokuen (兼六園)

There are over 340 maple trees planted within Kenrokuen and as November approaches, it will start to turn red.
