“A small museum dedicated to the early 20th century Buddhist philosopher Daisetz Suzuki, who was from Kanazawa. The building is located in a beautiful area a bit off the beaten path, and is largely dedicated to a personal history of Suzuki, with some reading materials available if you’re interested in his writings (including some translations into English). If you aren’t particularly into philosophy, the museum may still be worth a visit simply because of the architecture, especially the “water mirror garden” in back: essentially a giant reflecting pool that is occasionally interrupted by a small wave or two, which you can watch bouncing around the water.”

“Originally built centuries ago, Kenrokuen is widely regarded as one of the finest traditional Japanese gardens in the country. Regular admission is inexpensive, or even free if you go very early in the morning (the hours vary by season, starting as early as 4:00 or as late as 6:00, but usually it’s around sunrise, and you have to enter via the Renchimon Gate entrance). Kenrokuen Garden is also right next to Kanazawa Castle Park and near the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, making them a good set of destinations for a day out. Admission: ¥310 for adults, and ¥100 for kids 6–17. Hours: 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (8:00 to 5:00 Oct. 16 to end of Feb.) ”
