  • 4/12 visits. Entrance of weeping cherry trees are so beautiful and will become a photographer. Already brilliant green, and would be comfortable throughout the year. Irises, foliage, plum season is you want to come back again. Tokyo Dome look bigger but sometimes, no taste.

  • One of Tokyo's oldest gardens and also one of it's best. It's a stroll garden and takes about 45m to walk round at a leisurely pace while taking some pictures. It's worth visiting in the different seasons to see how the garden changes. The only downside is the close proximity to Tokyo dome, which can spoil the tranquillity of the garden.
  • There aren't even words for how beautiful this place is. It's also loaded with history. Honestly one of the best places I've been in Tokyo.
  • Although it's not a large garden I loved it. I visited the garden several times in different seasons and always enjoyed it. I loved the full moon bridge.
  • One of the city’s oldest and most Romantic Japanese gardens. This beautiful Japanese landscape garden in central Tokyo features a few dozen plum trees. It’s hard to believe this calm oasis is minutes away from one of Tokyo’s most bustling business areas. Water lilies in the pond blossom from May to September, followed by Autumn leaves on the Japanese Maple trees in Mid-November. In one word – Bliss. Don’t miss the tiny restaurant overlooking the Garden (at the entrance) serving Traditional Japanese meals at a very reasonable price. Koishikawa Korakuen is a short walk from Iidabashi Station.
