Garden

In Tokyo's Bunkyo Ward, there is an area called Korakuen, named after a Japanese garden located there. It is a "Kaiyushiki", or circuit-style garden, built around a pond with an island in the middle.
Under the Cultural Assets Preservation Act, it is designated as both a Special Historical Site and a Special Place of Scenic Beauty. In Kanto, only this garden and Hama-Rikyu Gardens have received this double designation.
This park features lakes, hills, rivers and rice paddies reproduced from places of scenic beauty. Each type of scenery is expressed in a magnificent way. With many of them named after famous places in China, a world of harmony, blending Japanese and Chinese taste, will unfold before you.

Highlight

  • In spring, you can enjoy various types of cherry blossoms, including the rare "Ukonzakura" variety.
