    Koishikawa Korakuen

    Koishikawa Korakuen is a stroll garden dating to the Edo period in the early 17th century. It was gracefully landscaped by the Mito Tokugawa family – with ponds, streams, plants and trees to represent sceneries of lakes, mountains, rivers and fields.

    Some 30 cherry trees will go into bloom, adorning the garden in soft-pink shades.

    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 (or earlier, depending on the weather).

    During the cherry blossom season, the garden’s opening hours will be extended until 6 p.m., from 23 March to 7 April this year.
