Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens
An urban garden of high aesthetic value and Tokyo's oldest daimyo (feudal lord) garden.
Located in Korakuen, Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo, this is a stroll garden with a central pond and landscaped hills and spring water. The garden embodies four landscapes: sea, mountains, rivers, and countryside, offering changing views as one walks around. Incorporating Chinese scenic spots and styles such as the Engetsu Bridge and Seiko Tsutsumi, it presents a world beautifully balancing Japanese and Chinese elements.
The garden is designated both a special historic site and a special place of scenic beauty under the Cultural Properties Protection Law. Only it and Hama-Rikyu Gardens have received this double designation in Kanto.
Located in the center of Tokyo, this space filled with nature and history is about 1.5 times the size of the Tokyo Dome.
It is said to be the earliest completed daimyo garden in the Edo period, influencing garden design throughout Japan.
The beautiful landscape can be enjoyed throughout the year, with plum, cherry, iris, red spider lilies, autumn leaves, and yukitsuri (snow hanging).
There are photogenic buildings scattered throughout, such as the Tōtenkyō (a red bridge) and a Chinese-style gate.
