Cherry blossoms and extended opening hours
17 March – 5 April 2018
Koishikawa Korakuen Garden
Koishikawa Korakuen garden was created during the Edo period in the early 17th century by the Mito Tokugawa family.
It is a “stroll garden”, gracefully landscaped with ponds, streams, plants and trees to represent sceneries of lakes, mountains, rivers and fields, for visitors to take in and stroll about.

In spring the aesthetic beauty of the garden will be highlighted by soft-pink blossoms of about 30 cherry trees.
First, the flowers of weeping cherries (shidare-zakura) turn into pinkish white, coming into full bloom in late March, followed by Somei Yoshino cherry trees, which burst into blossoms in early April.
During the cherry blossom season from mid-March to early April, the garden’s opening hours will be extended until 6 p.m.
