Beautiful Chinese Garden in Tokyo17 September, 2010 by Chad
Koishikawa Korakuen (小石川後楽園) is one of Tokyo’s most beautiful gardens, located in the city’s Bunkyo Ward. The nearly four century old garden is a government protected natural treasure. Inspired by Chinese philosophical teachings, the garden features miniature replicas of famous Chinese landmarks.
Koishikawa Korakuen is located just beside the Tokyo Dome. It can be accessed from Suidobashi station, but is nearer to the adjacent Iidabashi station.
Open from 9 AM to 5 PM daily, with an entry fee of 300 yen.
This garden is a favored Hanami (sakura viewing) spot during Spring, as there are a variety of different Cherry Blossom trees here. It’s also popular attraction in the Fall. Wilson has some better photos of the park in Spring, but he’s haven’t gotten so far in processing the photos yet. In the meantime, this will have to do.Planning your holiday?
