Find a place of tranquility and calm within the urban hubbub of the capital at Koishikawa Kōrakuen Garden, a green area that represents one of the oldest and best preserved sites in the city. The well maintained gardens were first developed by a feudal lord in 1629, and have since become a treasured public area, providing a welcome oasis of greenery and seasonal bloom within the sprawling city. Take a stroll around the park's main pond, admiring the contrast between the garden's natural colors and the dominant grey skyline of the city behind it. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Tokyo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Koishikawa Kōrakuen Garden and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Approached slowly from the Tokyo Dome, dark green and bright green. I was wondering can comfortably hear the voice of the cicada even normally detectible. Further one after another beautiful flowers of the seasons, it seems to appear. Remember you can't visit at this time, unfortunately, the limited time for slow win. I hope next time I can visit in the autumn season I ~, I thought. Admission is 300 yen for adults. Over 65 years old is 150 yen.

  • Such a wonderful place to explore if you are in the area and enjoy these type of activities. Lucky for us the flower field was in blood as were the lotus flowers.  more »

  • An absolutely beautiful garden and worth the visit. Entrance fee is about 300 Yen and it allows you to go into a very very peaceful park. It was extremely well maintained and quite beautiful. I had the pleasure of going during the peak cherry blossom season and it was breathtaking. But I feel that even if I went during non cherry blossom season, I would still be very impressed with the garden.
  • One of the best Japanese gardens in Tokyo. Beautiful and well maintained. We visited during momiji season in late November. It was crowded but still we managed to get some amazing photos. I do recommend a visit if you enjoy Japanese gardens.
  • It is amazing as a megalopolis like Tokyo still manages to maintain a well functioning balance between city and nature. So many wonderful green spots dot the city and this is one of them. Ponds with bridges, a Tea House...all "a la Japonaise" delight us at every turn of the way. Loved this place. The Sakura bloom there was awesome!
  • Beautiful garden, went in winter and it was still quite lush, I rate gardens on seasonal elements and wildlife. They had birds, fish and turtles ❤
  • amazing park. Japanese free park are all really beautiful so imagine a park where you have to pay 300yen to enter. It's super beautiful :D

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
