Nishida Family Garden (Gyokusenen Garden) 西田家庭園(玉泉園)

Small, traditional-style garden with an adjacent tea room

The Nishida Family Garden, also called Gyokusenen, is a traditional-style garden structured around a central pond. The stone pathways that wind through the garden’s terraced terrain are lined with plants whose color changes with the season. The tea room that overlooks the garden is perhaps the oldest in Kanazawa, and still serves green tea and Japanese-style sweets.

Wakita Naokata (1585–1660), a wealthy, Korean-born retainer of the ruling Maeda family, began building the garden in the mid-seventeenth century.
