Every spring, soft-pink cherry blossoms highlight the aesthetic beauty of Koisikawa Korakuen garden.
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. Its ponds, streams, plants and trees represent sceneries of lakes, mountains, rivers and fields.
Cherry blossoms at Koishikawa Korakuen
In spring, 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).
