Visited Kenrokuen garden, it's one of the most beautiful gardens/parks in Japan, and it was beautiful.
The entrance is free during the cherry blossom. Btw, the blossom had peaked in Hiroshima, and was about to end, but it's much colder here, addend the peak has still not been reached.
One nice thing is that the Kanazawa tourism site says that the weather is mild, seldom below freezing point during writer, but it also says that they seldom have good weather. A bit unusual to be that honest :-)
