Koishikawa Korakuen: historical garden tinted in gentle spring colours

  • Extended opening hours – spring 2016

    Koishikawa Korakuen Garden
    19 March – 5 April; 29 April – 8 May 2016

    Koishikawa Korakuen is a “daimyo (feudal lord) garden”, built by the Mito branch of Tokugawa shogunate in 1629 during the Edo period. This superb garden with a pond represents a landscape of lakes, mountains, rivers and fields.

    In spring, Koishikawa Korakuen is tinted in soft pink, adorned with blossoms of the celebrated weeping cherries, Yoshino cherry and other wild cherry species.

    During the o-hanami (cherry-blossom viewing) season between mid-March and mid-April, through Golden Week, the opening hours will be extended to 6 pm. So take the opportunity to dip in the unique spring atmosphere of the historic garden.
