Garden

Along with Kenroku-en in Kanazawa and Koraku-en in Okayama, this is one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan. With 3,000 plum trees of about 100 varieties planted here, the park grounds are famous for Ume plum-blossom viewing. From the end of February to the end of March, the Mito Ume Matsuri attracts many visitors.
In addition to Ume, Sakura cherry blossoms bloom in spring, and bamboo and azalea appear in summer. Autumn sees bush clover blossoms and red maple leaves, so flowers and plants can be enjoyed in every season here.
Constructed to hold tea ceremonies, Kobun-tei is a historic building. From its third floor, look out upon sweeping views of this beautiful garden.
