Story
~ORIGIN OF A RESTAURANT NAME~
[Kenrokuen Garden]
Kenrokuen is justifiably classified as one of Japan's "three most beautiful landscape gardens" alongside Mito's Kairakuen, and Okayama's Korakuen. In fact, many people consider it the best of them all. The garden was constructed by the ruling Maeda family over a period of nearly two centuries. It is located in the center of Kanazawa city. Also it has been considered as a garden where people can appreciate the beauty of four seasons and loved by many local people as well as by foreign tourists.This garden is so famous that tourists never visit Ishikawa without coming here.
The name Kenrokuen literally means "Garden of the Six Sublimities", referring to spaciousness, seclusion, artificiality, antiquity, abundant water and broad views, which according to Chinese landscape theory are the six essential attributes that make up a perfect garden. A stroll around Kenrokuen will help with understanding this landscape theory as the grounds are teeming with water features, bridges, teahouses, trees, flowers, stones, viewpoints and hidden nooks to discover. It is rare to find a garden that combines all these characteristics and so the people of Kanazawa are particularly proud of theirs.

Kaga Cooking
Kanazawa is blessed with a variety of foodstuffs, such as rice cropped in the Kaga Plain, Kaga vegetables, water of good quality in the Hakusan Mountains, and fish and shellfish caught in the Sea of Japan. Moreover, the production of soy sauce in the Ono area, advanced cooking techniques that was encouraged by the Maeda family, who ruled the Kaga Domain (the present Ishikawa and Toyama areas) in feudal times, and beautiful Kutani porcelain and lacquer ware raised the cooking culture of Kanazawa. Jibuni is traditional Kaga cuisine, made from boiled and seasoned duck coated with wheat, wheat gluten, and vegetables in thick soup.
Kutani Yaki(ware)
In recent years, not only traditional Kutani porcelain vessels and ornaments but also coffee cups and wineglasses with beautiful Kutani porcelain stems have been manufactured.Kanazawa's modern Kutani porcelain is based on a revival of Kutani porcelain early in the 19th century. Originally, Kutani porcelain was baked in Kutani Village in the southern part of Ishikawa Prefecture for several decades from the middle of the 17th century. Later, Kutani porcelain leaped to fame when it was exhibited at the 1873 World Exposition. Kutani porcelain has been once exported to the West. Kutani porcelain is characterized by the technique of thickly heaping up paint in five colors, i.e., red, yellow, green, purple, and dark blue and drawing natural beauties boldly. It developed as typical Japanese colorful ceramic ware.
Kaga Vegetables
Kaga vegetables are indispensable to Kaga cooking. There are 15 Kaga vegetables. These vegetables were planted in Kanazawa for the first time in 1945 or before. A leafy vegetable called "kinjiso" and red Japanese pumpkin are very unique to Kanazawa. These vegetables with high nutritional values are familiar home cooking vegetables as well in Kanazawa.
Sake (Japanese Rice Wine)
High-quality sake (Japanese rice wine) has been produced in Kanazawa for 400 years from rice harvested in the Kaga Plain and water taken from the Saigawa River and Asanogawa River in the cold winter of Kanazawa. The sake contains about 15% alcohol. There are four brewing companies in Kanazawa, all of which have been in operation for more than 100 years. Kanazawa's sake tastes rich and goes best with the food of Kanazawa. The sake has been loved by local people in Kanazawa for a long time.
