When Kenrokuen Garden becomes the snow scene, a light up event is held.
It is no charge for admission during a period.

In Kenrokuen Garden, lighting of autumnal leaves was performed from November 17 to November 18.Although it was bad weather during the weekend, many people were coming to admire.
This is a true symbol "Yukitsuri" of winter of Kanazawa.
The branch is supported by the rope so that trees may not break with snow coverage.
A lighting event is performed also November 23 to November 25.
