    Koishikawa Korakuen Garden

    Koishikawa Korakuen is a “daimyo (feudal lord) garden”, created during the Edo period by the Mito branch of the Tokugawa family. The garden is gracefully landscaped with a pond, streams, plants and trees, in the guise of a lake, mountains, rivers and fields.

    In spring Korakuen garden glows with tender leaves and flowers, and in particular with cherry blossoms. First the flowers of weeping cherries turn into pinkish white, coming into full bloom, and then Somei Yoshino cherry trees around the pond, as well as wild species of cherry trees.

    Cherry blossom season is around mid-March to mid-April (though depending on the weather conditions). Until 5 April, the garden will remain open until 6 pm, one hour longer than usual.
