April 10, 2015 - Night illumination at Kenrokuen Garden and Kanazawa Castle

After arrival at Kanazawa Station , I planned to check in at my hostel
and rest before next day trip to Alpine Route.
But manager at hostel informed me that, tonight illumination is held
at Kenrokuen Garden and Kanazawa Castle.
Leaving baggage at hostel, I decided to use that opportunity
to visit one of best gardens in Japan

Cherry trees entered full bloom state day before my arrival

Following flow of visitors, after leaving Kenrokuen Garden, I have reached
Kanazawa Castle grounds that were recostructed in recent years.
